From Thunder Road To Victory Lane
Bristol Tennessee ~ Paramount Theatre ~ Historic Theatre ~ My Photo 1990
This is not the story of a spot but the story of a journey of an organ. The existing resting location is the Paramount Center for the Performing Arts in Bristol, Tennessee.
The organ was initially installed in the Paramount Theater in Charlottesville, VA in 1931. It was a late Wurlitzer with no principal action on the manual chest. Organs sold to the Paramount chain were built this way to speed production and cut expense. Organ specialists who have observed the pipe function have said that this instrument is produced up of pipes from an earlier time. A practice not uncommon to the Wurlitzer organ organization, components from repossessed organs discovered their way into new contract organs.
