Bayersepple Orchestrion
Orchestrion in Waldkirch "Bayersepple" Restaurant
by Wolfgang Brommer (101121 MMDigest)

Dear friends, it's been a long time since I wrote and now I am back with you.  Today my great question:

In the Waldkirch restaurant called "Bayersepple" played a famous orchestrion.  Nobody knows about this instrument today.  Normally we would think, "It should have been a Gebr. Weber Orchestrion -- but maybe it's a Welte Cottage No. 2 or 3?"

All information was lost during the two World Wars and changes of owners and the house inside.  The only picture I have at this moment is from 1903.

Does anybody know more about this instrument?  I hope so, and see you at the next International Waldkirch Organ Festival, May 27th to May 29th, 2011.
