|A good friend recently purchased an antique Moller 3/12 theatre pipe organ! (Originally installed in the lobby of the San Francisco Fox theatre in 1928) I was asked to help remove and transport it to storage so the new owner can build a room large enough to house this historic item! We actually played the organ before starting removal! It was removed from the Fox in 1963 and later installed in the home of Hal Wilmunder in Sacramento CA., untill Wendell Jacob of Davis Cal. purchased it and we then removed it. Wendell is the third owner of the organ since it's manufacture! I have had little prior experience with a device such as this, so it was quite a learning experience!! And quite a lot of work!! The original work time was estimated at 5-7 days, well, after 14 days we had the last piece moved!! 12-01-05 I had to close the guestbook due to spammers, sorry!|
