One Minute Please

Here's a fun postcard advertising the Aeolian Pipe Organ... I can just imagine Robert Moran being grabbed by the ear and a salesman saying "What you want is an Aeolian Pipe Organ for your mansion on Orcas Island!"

The rest of the postcard reads:
"What would you do with it? Why, play it, of course."
"You don't play? That makes no difference; they are made for people who can't play."
"Oh, you can play, can you? That's all right; they are made for you, too, my friend."
"The Aeolian Organ is the universal instrument. It is, first, a perfect Keyboard Organ
for the expert musician, and also an instrument upon which any one entirely ignorant
of music can play anything without the slightest practice."

Now you now why I have been able to "perform" at Rosario Resort for so long ;-)
