Interesting picure Albert.
Looks as though it could be an english built organ and trolley wonder how it has made its way to Gran Canaria.
These Organ Grinders get everywhere. :wink2:

Regards
George. :grinder:

Thanks for the information Legro.
The wheels on the trolley look just like the ex Wheel Chair wheels that are used in UK . :tiphat:

Yes it was a Deleika organ & he was German, quite a lot of Germans in Maspalomas.

Unfortunately i didnt get chance to speak to the chap as the wife & kids were dragging me away saying "We didnt travel 2'000 miles to stand here looking at organs"

I suppose they had a point.
