Wurlizer Military Band

This past Saturday I went to the Michigan Flywheelers Museum in South Haven, Michigan with my brother Dan. They were having their Antique Engine & Tractor Show! Lots of tractors and hit-and-miss engines, a little bit of steam, and this glorious music box:

More pictures and maybe a video behind the cut.



Here is a mirror's eye view of the bottom of the box:

Next a close up of the mirror showing the wooden whistles labeled with appropriate notes:

Here is the back side being examined by my brother Dan on the right, and the restorer on the left. I forgot to get the man's name!

Next, the video of the back side of the music box. It is as loud as it seems. In fact the restorer had to mute the thing considerably to keep his wife happy. It must be deafening at full volume. Agatha Heterodyne would be proud!




Last the Restorer holding a box that contains a roll of music for the Wurlitzer:

I have some other pictures of the show. Who knows? Maybe one day I will post some.

The End
