Stapleford Park Country Fair 7/7

Besides the miniature railway at Stapleford Park there was an extensive country fair so a few shots from that this week. There was two replica fairground organs on display, and playing music, at the event. On the left is a 1991 Pell Organ and on the right is a 1989 McCarthy 22 organ called Little Gem. needless to say they both sounded good and gave the event a lot of atmosphere.

 

Here is the organ on the left at Stapleford in 2011:

Pin Organs are wonderful things, Brian...one of the first programable machines, and precesars to the modern general purpose computers.
Brian Walbey: They sound good as well ray.

They are very good and one of the first uses of punched cards I came across. Punch cards were one of the main ways of programming early computers.
A musical ending to your very enjoyable Stapleford Park Country Fair series, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Beverly, glad you enjoyed it.
They make a jolly sound!
Brian Walbey: I like listening to these .
