The only known picture of the King Roller Rink Wurlitzer, date unknown
The King Rink had a 2/8 Wurlitzer which included parts from opus #341 originally installed in Aberdeen's Weir Theatre. Balcom & Vaughan moved the instrument to King Roller Rink in 1937 and enlarged it in 1940. Then in April 1963, Balcom & Vaughan removed the organ. According to Terry Hochmuth, the relay went to Steve's Gay 90's restaurant where it was combined with another relay. Several of the other components, not including the console, were used for the Ed Stern residence organ in 1964.
