A Grand Barton Theater Pipe Organ 2/, manual/, keyboards/, was shipped 85 miles from the Barton factory in Oshkosh B'kosh, Wisconsin in 1925. Anyone have any idea what happened to the organ?

Bomb Is Exploded at Milwaukee Movie House
[Associated Press Leased Wire)
MILWAUKEE â€" A dynamite bomb was exploded in front of the Grace theater, a neighborhood movie house, at 2:55 a. m. today wrecking the front of the structure.
Paul Orsic, manager, said the only motive he could ascribe for the bombing was a disagreement with an operator who wanted to join the union.
A stick of dynamite, the fuse partly burned, was found on the roof of the theater after the blast.
