Collen-Broadway Pneumatic Player Piano Action
by Françoise Dussour (010324 MMDigest)

Hallo MMD friends and player piano fans!  Can you help me?  I search for informations, date, and maker about a pneumatic piano made by J. Broadwood & Sons in London.  It is an 88-note player and the paper rolls are 285 mm wide.  The pneumatic system (very interesting) is made by Collen-Broadway, patent 327512.  I have attached files with some pictures.  Thanks for informations.

Best regards from Mirecourt (France)
