Wilcox and White Organ/Player - Need Info
By John Ward

My friend Bob Cole has just unearthed a curious unit, and needs some
information and help. It's a combination push-up player mechanism with
a reed organ built in. The name on the front is Angelus Orchestral,
built in 1899 by Wilcox and White. It's intact (no missing parts) but
in rough shape from water and mouse damage, so it will take Bob a while
to get it back in shape.

Bob would appreciate any information concerning this unit, but
especially needs some rolls for it. The device takes a 58 note roll,
but has smaller pins than the Aeolian. Do these sound familiar to
anyone in the group?

Bob has no email, so post replies either to MMD or to me privately.

Thank you,
John Ward [ drop .geentroep to reply ]
