Seek Picture of Early Wurlitzer Snare Drum Action
By Matthew Caulfield

In connection with an article I am writing, I need a picture of
Wurlitzer's earliest snare drum action, the design of which was purely
mechanical.  It was 100% non-pneumatic, except of course for the small
pneumatic motor that brought the belt-driven ratchet wheel into play to
fling the drum beaters against the drum head.

If you can supply a picture, you would be credited in the article.
