FS: Funeral Music on Style MSR Rolls
By Eric Bergstrom

Hello all,  I have a couple of Automatic Music Roll Company rolls
that I'm looking to identify.  First, I need to understand what machine
they fit.  They are 15-1/4 inches wide, punched at 6 holes per inch.
I think these are possibly photoplayer rolls per a post by Mr. Reblitz
a few years ago.  But both rolls seem to be funeral rolls, so maybe
they are for a brand of mortuary organ?

The first one is MSR-1035, "Chapel Organ Echoes", and the first song
is Chopin's Funeral March.  The remaining songs seem to be hymns as
would be played at a funeral.  The second roll is MSR-1169, "Mortuary",
and is also traditional hymns.

Both rolls have boxes but the labels on the boxes don't match the
rolls.  I would like to sell them so if anyone is interested, please
write me.  If I don't hear from anyone, I will post them on eBay,
once I figure out what machine they are for.
