This is a Coin Operated Electric Piano manufactured by Berry-Wood
, which according to the previous owner, came from the old Ocean View Amusement
Park in Norfolk, Va. That's where the roller coaster was located that was
blown up in the mover "Roller Coaster". She said that it was brought
home by her father, after the park disposed of it from lack of use. I found
that it was set up to accept a dime. Now that was a lot of money in 1929!
The park had a pair of these pianos, and he had brought them both home.
One was in the living room, the other in the parlor! I purchased
one, and she never consented to sell the other one.
The rear mounted music frame was missing from both pianos,
and she has no idea if her father had stored them somewhere, or if there
were discarded. However, the tracker bar and original coin mechanism
were in the bottom of the piano.
The piano is in generally good condition, but with lots
of moth damage. You can see one piece of veneer missing on the right end.
It has never been touched as far as repairs or restoration.
