Langshaw's Barrel Organ

Two more chamber barrel organs of this type made by John Langshaw have been discovered since Mr. Langshaw's Square Piano went to press; one in Illinois, USA, previously in the collection of Mr. Ralph Heintz, and another in a private collection in the south of England.


Some of the tunes are different - they were clearly made to order.

All three can still be played.
