WURLITZER STYLE 146 BAND ORGAN RESTORATION PROJECT - The Series
by Dr. Bill Black

In November of 2001 Dr. Floyd Moreland and I wrote an article describing an overall view of the restoration of the Wurlitzer Style 146 band organ located on the carousel at Casino Pier in Seaside Heights, NJ. This new series of articles will expand on that article with more photos of the project. To provide some context to this new series, readers should first visit that article in the archive section of this web site at www.carousels.com/bblack/cpier_restoration.php.

The restoration project began in October of 2000. This series will mostly be a presentation of the photos that were taken during the restoration process. We wonąt go into great detail in descriptions since the basic restoration process is similar to that described in the 105 restoration series.
