    St. Albans, Hertfordshire.

    At Mr Hart's Organ Museum we see a miniature old-fashioned fairground ride turning round; several shots show amazing fairground organs with moving musical instruments, tinsel Christmas trees, pom-poms and toy dogs attached. Mr Hart sits and listens to the organ music and taps his hand on his leg in time. Various shots show revolving drums turning round inside music boxes (or organs) to play music.

    Several shots show a large kitsch organ with golden pillars with the words 'England's Pride' at the top of it, made by Decap; plants and toy dogs decorate the organ along with a moving accordion and a saxophone. Mr Hart feeds a paper roll with holes punched from it into the organ.

    Note: there are some leaflets on file about the museum. Jenny Hammerton informs me the museum is still there today and hasn't changed since this film was made.
