The Organ Grinder - My Favorite Pizza Restaurant

by Lyle Guthrie
(Seal Rock, OR)

In the late 1950's and very early 60's, my family and I lived 5 blocks from the Organ Grinder restaurant. We went there quite frequently to eat and enjoy ourselves.

I always loved pipe organ music and wanted to play the organ myself. Besides the good food and wonderful atmosphere, we mostly enjoyed the music provided by the organists.

It was always a treat to watch the silent movies with the children.

I have one LP record from the restaurant and I play it occasionally to reminisce. It's a shame places like Organ Grinder Pizza can't last forever.
