Portable Reed Organs
by Robbie Rhodes

Bruce Clark and Damon Atchison donated this advertisement for the miniature Estey child's reed organ, from Better Homes and Gardens magazine, December 1936.  During World War 2 the Estey company made a slightly bigger portable organ to U.S. Army specifications, including the "olive drab" color, which provided music for church services on the battlefield.
