Thinking Outside the Box...

...Inside a Pipe Organ at Ft. Meyer, Virginia

Xaver Wilhelmy is restoring this 1935 Möller Organ in place at Old Post Chapel in Ft. Meyer. We are working right next to the Arlington National Cemetary.

Here I am after a morning of removing old leather. Photo by Xaver Wilhelmy.

What a gorgeous photo of the budding tree with the cemetery as the background. It's one of those "pictures worth a thousand words". Thanks for sharing the organ repair work. It's obviously a very messy business.
