Hi all,

 

I don't know if this has already been posted anywhere on the Mander Forum but the Daily Telegraph of 27th July 2011 carried an obituary for the organ builder David Pawlyn to whom credit has been given for preventing numerous cinema & theatre organs from the scrap heap.

 

A link - which I didn't need a subscription to access - can be found here:

Interesting that one ended up in Berlin: where did that come from in England, I wonder?

 

HTIOI,

Dave

=======================

 

 

Thank you for the information.

 

I knew David, (and his civil partner Donald), when I lived in London.

 

He did an awful lot for cinema organ preservation in particular.

I had the pleasure of working with David on a few occassions. He was the first person to involve me in the field of cinema organs and was very accomodating of my limited knowledge of their differences to church type instruments. He'll certainly be much missed in the cinema organ community.
