59-key Gasparini Organ Played in San Francisco
By Matthew Caulfield

A man called me to see what I know about the history of a 59-key
Gasparini band organ that he owns.  It came from San Francisco in
the Cliff House-Playland area, and he believes that it may be the
earliest band organ that was in San Francisco.

I know that is not much to go on, but does anyone recognize that
organ and know anything about its origins or ownership chain?
