Organ Donation

We bought a circa-1910 Beckwith Reed Organ, sold by Sears in the early 20th century.

Seems, as kind of a lark, I put down the opening bid for the organ - and no one else bid for it ;)

Now, I play the piano but know beans about organs. Some of the keys are stuck, and a few of the labels have come off the stops, but the exterior is bee-u-tee-ful.

The picture above is from another website, and not an actual photo of our organ - I'm still researching the exact model and date of manufacture, but it's very close to ours.

So, there you go... tres cool, huh?
