Anyone for Street Organs?

A little over a week ago, Ron, Chicki and I attended an annual get-together for Street Organ enthusiasts.

Held at Campbelltown in the Western Suburbs of Sydney, this rally attracted quite a crowd. Some organs were quite large and capable of producing tunes in high volume. Others were small and sweet. All were colourful!

Families turned up in anticipation of an interesting and unusual  outing.

The hot, sunny conditions saw plenty of takers for ice-creams and cold drinks.

My husband Ron made almost all of the pipes for the organ that Chicki and I are seated near, the ‘Crusader’ .

Enjoy!

      It’s good to see some here in Australia. 🙂

        Yes it is. It would be nice if they were at more events around the country too I think.
