Wurlitzer Band Organ, Style 103
Manufacture date: Circa 1928
The Wurlitzer band organ, Style 103 was made by the Rudolph Wurlitzer Co., North Tonawanda, NY. The smallest regular-production band organ in the Wurlitzer line, this little organ is nearly as loud as Wurlitzer's largest model, the 180, and locally called the "loudest," next to it. It was typically used on small portable amusement rides. Plays Wurlitzer 125 rolls. Acquired by Charles Bovey from a priest in Helena and the original shipping crate is still with the organ.
