Keyboardless Player Organ Console In Old Mansion
By Christofer Noering

Hello!  While searching for dazzling pictures of "abandoned organs"
and such, I found the following article in the "Daily Mail":

Inside-abandoned-mansion-outside-NYC-frozen-time.html

Yes, an abandoned mansion!  And yes, there is an organ inside it.
Can anyone tell me what it is?  My own estimate is that it is an
electronic player-only organ with an ordinary pneumatic tracker
bar.  It is not an Aeolian-Hammond, though.

Best regards,
Christofer Noering
Stockholm, Sweden
