Wurlitzer records indicate a small organ, II/4, Style BX, their opus 1362 was shipped to the “Rothwell” Theatre in Willow Grove PA on June 12, 1926. That sounds suspiciously like the Grove being referred to by the company name: Rothwell. Or did the Rothwells open a 2nd theatre in Willow Grove? The organ apparently survives in a private residence in Glenside PA.
