FS: Aeolian Duo-Art Organ Console and Rolls
By John Daly

A couple of people have asked for photos of my Aeolian Duo-Art organ
console, so here are a couple.  This is Aeolian Opus 1658, originally
sold to Courtland S. Brown in 1927-1928 for $11,100, according to
Rollin Smith's book, "The Aeolian Pipe Organ and Its Music."

As you can see the console is not the same style as the earlier Aeolian
consoles that I've seen.  There is a roll front cover that comes down
to cover the manuals.
