“Hurdy Gurdy” Barrel Organ, 1900.
Here is a charming vintage postcard of a Hurdy Gurdy Man, from Talwrn, Angesley, 1900. On top of the Barrel Organ there are what looks like 3 puppets, which I presume moved to the music. This must have been great entertainment for the children in the photograph!
I wonder if the buildings in the photograph are still there….and if so what they are used for now.
Here are some videos of what Barrel Organs sounded like:
