FS: Pianolas & Musical Boxes in UK
By Kevin McElhone

I have been asked by a friend here in England, who does not have
e-mail, to send in a list of items he wishes to sell in the hope
that some members of MMD might be interested.  I have no interest
in the items myself, I am merely listing them for the benefit of
others and you should contact him directly by telephone to discuss.

The seller is

  Mr. Smith
  tel: 01162-402374

If you live outside of England drop the leading 0.

Please do not contact me about these items, as I am just posting
the 'advert' for a friend.
