Street Organ History at Web Site
By Brian Flora

Thievishness and Organ Grinders

We've just put up on our web site an interesting engraving and a
brief article from an 1871 issue of Hearth and Home.  The links to our
historical freebies are in the middle of our street organ history page,
accessible by following the link at

The engraving portrays two grinder families enjoying a "free" lunch,
which the editor assumes was stolen!  I kept the scans at about 50K,
so they take a few seconds to load.  Enjoy!
