Electro-pneumatic action

Aeolian Player
The Aeolian Company contract, dated April 16, 1898, states that this organ would be built in a hall, occupying a space 14 ft. wide, 4 ft. deep and 16 ft. high, with the lower part of the instrument extending 4 ft. into rooms below to gain the necessary height. An organ case of quartered oak with dark finish would be surmounted by gilded front pipes, all of which was to conform as much as possible to the other architecture in the house, subject to approval. Aeolian provided a detached "keybox" (console) of ebonized wood that would conform to the finish in the library. The owner's Steinway Grand Piano was to be connected to the console with Aeolian mechanism. Total cost of the organ was $5,000.
This organ was later moved to the Masonic Temple, Portsmouth, Ohio. ----------
