Description
1929 Nash Roadster, two door convertible with rumble seat. Body colour is two-tone, tan and brown. Wheels are wire spoke, mounting 29 in. X 5.5 in. tube tires. There are spare tires mounted on rims. These are located forward of the side doors. All the wheels have hubcaps. There are no side curtains. The engine is six cylinder with a "Twin Ignition" system. There are two sparkplugs per cylinder.
Object History
The Nash roadster was purchased by a private owner in British Columbia after it came out in 1929. In the late 1950s or 1960s the car was purchased from the first owner by William "Graham" Kidd (1922-1984) of Burnaby. The well loved vehicle was nicknamed "Agnes" by it's second owner Graham Kidd. Graham Kidd was the son of William Kidd Sr. (1882-1970) and Helen Kelly Kidd (1894-1977). Graham Kidd was born in Burnaby in 1922 and lived in Burnaby his whole life. Graham's father William Kidd and his mother Helen White Kelly married in North Burnaby in 1917 and moved into a home on Oxford Street. William Kidd opened a hardware store on East Hastings Street Burnaby in 1913 and operated it for twenty years before working for Burrard Brokerage in the 1930s. William and Helen had three children; William Graham Kidd, Margaret Graham "Peggy" (McLaughlin) and Ann (Mercier). In the late 1940s, Graham joined his father William Kidd working for Burrard Brokerage eventually becoming the proprietor of the business in the 1950s. Graham Kidd married Gweneth "Gwen" Anderson and lived in North Burnaby with their three children until he died in 1984. Graham Kidd loved his Nash automobile often going for Sunday drives with the convertible top down with children riding in the rumble seat. Parts for the automobile were hard to come by and the family recalls a neighbour Oscar Johnson helped to keep it in good condition. In the 1970s the Nash roadster was also refurbished and repainted with help from Graham Kidd's neighbour John Prestas. In 1984, after William Kidd died, Gwen Kidd donated the automobile to the Transportation Museum of British Columbia, Cloverdale who in turn donated it to Burnaby Village Museum in 1993.

Description
This is a Wurlitzer Military Band Organ, Style 146B. Built by the Rudolph Wurlitzer Company, ca 1925. The organ is supposed to recreate the sound of a 20-piece military band, with percussion instruments that include bass drum, snare drums, cymbals, and xylophones, as well as pipes to reproduce the sounds of trumpets, trombones, flutes, and violins. This band organ is operated by paper rolls based on Wurlitzer's unique, 46 note roll scale, "Style 150". Our Model 146B has duplex roll frames, allowing continuous playing, one roll rewinds as the other is playing. An electric motor mounted on the top uses a belt to drive a crankshaft that powers both the air bellows that feed the various music pipes as well as the roll mechanism. The band organ was originally intended to be used with a carousel out of doors. A perferated sheet of plexie glass has been placed over the front opening to reduce the volume of the instrument inside the carousel building. Outside Visible Snare Drum on proper right Bass Drum with cymbal on proper left Inside 16 Octave Violin Pipes 3 Wooden Trombones 3 Octave Stopped Bass Pipes 15 Wooden Trumpets 15 Stopped Flute Pipes 16 Violin Pipes 9 Open Pipes Bottom 3 Open Bass Pipes 9 Stopped Accompaniment Pipes 16 Stopped Melody Pipes Bells 16 Bell Bars, playing form the musical roll.
Object History
The band organ was purchased and restored by the Friends of the Carousel to replace the original organ that had been sold before the carousel was acquired for the Burnaby Village Museum. The Friends of the Carousel bought this machine from a collector in Spokane, Washington. He had obtained it from a closed down travelling carnival company in Reno, Nevada. They had used it with a carousel in the American mid-west.
