The Wonders Of The Largest Pipe Organ In The World

The Wanamaker Grand Court Organ image
Who would have thought that the largest pipe organ in the world is in a department store!

That's right, this wonder of human engineering actually lives in Macy's department store in Philadelphia (formerly Wanamakers).

The Wanamaker Grand Court Organ has now been totally refurbished and works better than when it was new in 1909. It's 7 stories high, weighs 287 tons(!) and has 26,677 pipes.

This video shows behind the scenes of how it works. Truly amazing.

Thanks, Jesse Jaye for the heads up.
