 'From the classics to ragtime, player piano music rolls to this day, continue to be readily available new or second hand, from many sources, in every country of the world. Such was, and is, the popularity of the medium'

Once restored, your player piano is an asset unlikely to ever be replaced, (they stopped making them, awhile back). So no matter whom you may insult, be careful with who you allow to operate it . As much as I am in favour of young people being exposed to these instruments, little kids just don't understand the age and fragility and should always be supervised by an adult.
