Do my eyes deceive me, or has it had a rather basic illuminated surround added at some time? But never mind that, it was one of those lovely sweet-sounding early Wurlitzers and it’s good to know that it’s being cherished and looked after in the URC church at Beer in Devon.

In my childhood in the 1950’s the illuminated surround had been removed.. When the Stage was bought forward for Cinemascope the organ was hidden from view. There where 2 large doors under the screen that was opened when the organ was used.
