The Organ Grinder of Vienna

by Ben Mckechnie February. 12, 2017 1360 views

I was walking towards Stephansplatz in Vienna, Austria, last Wednesday and met this gentleman. I sat and watched as he loaded a paper roll into his mechanical organ, then turned the handle to produce a pretty tune. He was making a decent wage which, considering the freezing temperature, was well-earned.

It's really cool to see the inside of the organ in this set. I love these
