What's an Orchestrion?
By Glenn Morris

We must not forget the "Fotoplayer" which is comprised of organ,
percussion, and piano, which can be played manually and with rolls.

Glenn Morris
Portland, Oregon

 [ The "Fotoplayer" or "photoplayer" certainly has enough instruments,
 [ but I think Dave Bowers and Art Reblitz mean that all the instruments
 [ of an orchestrion are played automatically by the music roll, as in
 [ the European orchestrions.  Can the different types of photoplayers
 [ do this?  -- Robbie
