An Early Pianola
This 1907 Aeolian Pianola is an example of entertainment of its period. Manufactured by the Aeolian Companu of New York it is the fore-runner to the later inbuilt version.
This is a stand alone unit which can be removed from in front of the piano to enable normal play. In operation it plays the keys in exactly the same way as a pianist seated at the keyboard.
Coupled to a 1910 Faust Piano, it is in full working order, and its demonstration is sure to get the feet tapping.
