Wurlitzer Photoplayer in New Zealand
By Don Paynter

At this time I believe that my photoplayer is a Wurlitzer Model "O"
player and it was built in 1915 (piano no. 24658).  It has two spool
frames mounted side by side and it formerly had two side cabinets.

How can I confirm that this information is correct?  Can anyone help
me with plans or photos?  I aim to rebuild it back to as near original
as I can.  What pipes, etc., did the original side cases hold?  Any
information will be a help and the more the better.
