Antique musical instruments: Aeolian Pipe Organ, UK circa 1913
Manual and automatic organ. It resembles a traditional church organ.
The two keyboards are separated from the organ case where the pipes can be found. It can be played manually or automated for paper rolls perforated on 116 holes of the two keyboards containing 58 keys each. As the paper unfolds, the operator chooses the register as he wishes or follows the indications printed on the roll. The case measures 3.30M wide by 3m high with around 300 pipes.
