Carousel Organ at Bushkill Park, Easton, PA
By Bruce Pier
The organs on the Tom Long Carousel that was at Bushkill Park consisted
of a Wurlitzer Style 153 in the center, and a brass horn organ mounted
on a platform on the outside edge. I was back there in the mid 1980s.
I have photos of this machine (which are deep in storage) and, now
that I think about it, the brass horn organ could very well have been
a North Tonawanda playing 150 rolls. The organ of choice seems to have
been the Wurlitzer 153, however.
As I recall when the park closed the family heirs removed the machine
and it's organs. They are in storage at an undisclosed location.
