Antique Pump Organ

Here is the old W.Doherty pump organ that I was talking about earlier. I have always thought that it's kind of sad to think that most of these instruments are just being thrown away, falling into disrepair, or being treated like furniture. The good news about them being so hard for people to get rid of, is that you often see them for sale on Craigslist for dirt cheap. oh, and in case you are wondering, it sounds beautiful.

  1. apparently this organ was damaged in an arson fire some 16 years ago, its odd to realize how much history can be behind everything, its not something i think about much. maybe take a look at the oldest thing in your house and imagine every thing it's been through.
