Vintage Music Box

After nearly a half-century of having been pushed into the obscurity of attic, barn, cellar and corner closet, and being replaced by more modern automatic musical instruments.

Musical boxes, nickelodeons and various other musical machines really emerged from limbo through the efforts of a small group who recognized their worth and decided to form an organization whose purpose was to increase the interest and knowledge about these instruments, and to aid in their repair and preservation by pooling the experience and information that the various members had gathered themselves.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get
    that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a great job with this.
    Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Safari.
    Outstanding Blog!
