The old church organ

Wooden, drab, forgotten, silent.  So many church organs have been removed from churches and dismantled.  This old pump organ was in a small chapel in a retreat centre in Washington State and it, too, was silent and forgotten.

I suspect that it is a collectors piece now, but how many people are prepared to keep such old historic instruments just to preserve heritage?  Not many these days.

And that’s quite sad really.
