Sheffield City Hall organ

We had a fabulous guided tour & demo of the organ in the City Hall, with it’s original 1935 hairline wiring & relays (state of the art at the time) still intact! The organ, built by Henry Willis & Sons, cost £12,650 and is now the only remaining example in the world still unaltered from the original construction. It is now valued at around £1m
 
It brought back so many memories from the 70s when I used to crash gigs and hide in the attic or boiler room to avoid buying a ticket. I remember Keith Emerson in 1971 at their soundcheck dashing up to it only to be told he wasn’t allowed to play it ;(
