Meet Horricks

This is Horricks. It's a 100+ year old pump organ (it was made in 1901, I think) that my Grandma Maggie Thomson (nee Horricks) brought out from Ontario. She gave it to mom. I ended up with it.
It's not the best photo ever, but a) it's my very first ever blog photo, b) it's one of the first photos I ever took with my digital camera, and c) it's Horricks and I'm happy.

My gran had one of these. I used to fiddle around playing it. Now I'm wondering what happened to it. Maybe it's at My Uncle's?

I also have a beautiful old piano but it has part wooden frame and won't hold tuning. Such a shame as it had a lovely sound.

These pump organs have no monetary value, but the energy they carry from our family members is priceless. If you've got one somewhere, it's worth finding.

By the way, thanks. It was your comment about Solstice pics that gave me the incentive to learn how to post photos.
