Mechanical Music on TV "Ghost Hunters"
By Andy Taylor

Hi all,  As far as I know, there are no automatic musical instruments
in Tombstone, Arizona, at least in this day and time.  Even the piano
at Big Nose Kate's Saloon came from the town of Sierra Vista.

The piano that came from the Bird Cage Theatre is now in the Longhorn
Restaurant steak house.  It's a Schubert, circa 1904, and is in very
bad condition.

While I was at the Bird Cage there was no evidence of anything from
that era.  I would surmise this may have been added.

Andy Taylor

 [   During its short business life, the Bird Cage was the wildest
 [   place in the west!"
