Sorry Jeff, but I guess Lou’s not going to answer your question. I wish I could!

Does anyone know what make and model theater organ was in the Girard Theatre and when it was removed? Also, what happened to it.

Thanks!

Lou, Can you tell me the source of the photo of the façade of the Girard? I am researching, J. B. McElfatrick & Son, the firm that designed the Girard, and would like to obtain a copy of the photo. Thanks!

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 28. (1903) — The Girard Avenue Theater was gutted by fire early today, entailing a loss of $50,000, of which $25,000 was on the building and the remainder on the contents. The fire started at about 3:30 a. m. on the stage, and is supposed to have been caused by an electric light wire. A traveling company was producing the “Minister’s Daughter.” All of the company’s scenery and costumes were destroyed. Miller and Kauffman were the lessees.
