Collen-Broadway Pneumatic Player Piano Action
By Francoise Dussour

Hallo MMD friends and player piano fans!  Can you help me?  I search
for informations, date, and maker about a pneumatic piano made by
J. Broadwood & Sons in London.  It is an 88-note player and the paper
rolls are 285 mm wide.  The pneumatic system (very interesting) is
made by Collen-Broadway, patent 327512.  I have attached files with
some pictures.  Thanks for informations.

Best regards from Mirecourt (France)
Francoise Dussour
