FS: Seeburg O-Roll Orchestrion in Mundelein, IL
By Steve McCollum

While browsing through an antique store looking for insulators, I came
upon what seemed to be a Seeburg nickelodeon.  They played it for me,
but the guy at the store knew little more than I, and I'm _way_ out of
my depth.

It is an upright piano, with "Seeburg" in gilt letters above the
keyboard.  It has three glass doors above.  Behind the doors I could
see two drums, a cymbal, tambourine, a rank of xylophone bars, and a
large drum on top of the case.  It played an "O" roll, and he has
several more rolls.  Anyone interested in this thing can contact:

  Village Antique Mall
  131 E. Maple Ave (Rt. 176)
  Mundelein, IL 60060
  tel.: 847-566-2363 ask for "Steve" (not me --
    the name is a coincidence!)
