Methuen Music Hall
It was commissioned by Edward Searles to hold “The Great Organ” he purchased from The Boston Music Hall around 1897 for $1500.
At the time, it was believed to be the largest pipe organ in the United States, with 5,474 pipes and 84 registers.
Between the trees, telephone poles and lines in front of the hall on Broadway Street in Methuen, I’ve always found it difficult to get a good shot of this great building. I keep trying. This was shot with my 11-16mm lens, at 11mm.
I have reached out to the Music Hall’s board of directors and have gotten their permission to photograph the interior of this spectacular building. I hope to conduct the shoot within the next few weeks.
The images will be available for sale, to support the fundraising efforts of the Music Hall’s Trustees. Stay tuned to this site for a preview of the images.
