I don't know whether this will be of interest to anyone, but I am
mentioning it for the MMD Archives, just in case.
Last week, while going through the files of the Historical Society of
the Tonawandas, Tonawanda, New York, I found a little catalog listing
the cylinders made for the Tonophone, together with an alphabetical
list of all tune titles pinned onto Tonophone cylinders, showing the
cylinder numbers on which each tune was used.
The catalog is in an envelope with other items, marked "Manufacturers
-- Wurlitzer. Catalogs."

[ Tim Trager described the instrument in his article at
[ The North Tonawanda Barrel-Organ Factory which was headed by Eugene
[ de Kleist designed and built the instrument for Wurlitzer. The
[ instrument was a coin-operated automatic piano played by a pinned
[ cylinder, but instead of being operated by direct mechanical
[ linkages, the Tonophone was pneumatically operated. The cylinder
[ pins lifted levers which opened valves to a pneumatic mechanism
[ which operated the piano.
