L. B. Doman "Artona" Player Pipe Organ Console
By Andrew Wos

-- non-subscriber, please reply to sender and MMD --

I believe I have the console from Mr. Doman's Syracuse, New York,
home player organ.  It is a 2-manual Marr and Colton console with
100+ stop tabs, two swell pedals and one crescendo pedal.  The
original grease pencil markings on various parts of the console
identify it as 'Mr. Doman, Syracuse NY'.  I have only the console
from this organ which I adapted to play my home pipe organ.  See
pictures on
