Note on photo: A early-day juke box!! As a contribution to the authentic Coney Island atmosphere in music we secured an old "Hurdy-Gurdy Pianola" for the Uptown lobby. We played it for a week in advance and during the engagement on the breaks of the shows. It attracted a great deal of attention especially from the younger generation who had never seen the grandaddy of the juke-box.
