Whilst watching a BBC programme about architectural salvage,I was intrigued to hear a dealer mention that he had had some "salvage"from the Albert Hall organ.

I would be interested to hear what he got other than old tubing,wiring and split windchests.

Yes I heard something about this too and we are all at a loss as to what it might actually be. All the soundboards were disposed of as there was nothing else which could be done with them. Certainly we did not pass anything on to anything to any "salvage" firms. The pipework was all reused, the old trunking was of no interest to anyone. The only thing we did do was to cut up some of the upperboards into small pieces which might be used as key rings. This was an idea the authorities at the hall had so we did that for them.

 

If anyone did hear anything more concrete on this, I for one would be interested to know about it.
