Macy's Wonderful Organ on Straight out of the Camera Sunday


A couple of years ago on a trip to Philadelphia my husband took this photo of the Wanamaker Grand Court Organ in Macy's Center City at 13th and Market Street.  It is the World's largest operational pipe organ.  It was massive.  My husband and I listened to the organist play for quite a while.  It was amazing I came out of the store having bought nothing.   Please join Murrieta 365 for Straight out of the Camera Sunday at http://www.murrieta365.com/search/label/SOOC%20Sunday

What an incredible sight that organ must be! The pipes consume a wall! And it looks as if it is set on a mezzanine so that you look down to the next level! O, and love the gold tone too! Enhances the fact that the organ is a very preciousw treasure!
