PianOrchestra in Ray Siou Collection
By Andrew Barrett

In 1998.04.29.08 MMD Mark Forer mentions a video of Ray Siou's
collection where he demonstrates an Arburo dance organ, Seeburg coin
pianos, and Wurlitzer PianOrchestras.  A search of
reveals that none of the PianOrchestras mentioned on that site passed
through the hands of Ray Siou.

There are two explanations for this.  Either he owns an original
instrument(s), or he is the person mentioned in the section of
"Treasures of Mechanical Music" that wanted to build a replica/build-up
of an original instrument.

What interests me is what model this is, and if there are any pictures
or history or construction details available on this instrument.
I would appreciate seeing and hearing them.
