Wurlitzer organs


The brand name of the Rudolph Wurlitzer Manufacturing Company. Their theatre organs were built in North Tonawanda, New York state.

Their involvement in theatre organs began in the 1900’s with a partnership with Englishman Robert Hope-Jones, and they developed the Hope-Jones Unit Orchestra concept into a marketable product, of which over 2,200 were delivered worldwide. Around 100 found their way to the UK and Ireland.
