Mortier-orchestrion #142 twice in the book

Thanks to information provided by organ enthusiast Peter Craig, it appears that the 92-key Mortier orchestrion #142 is mentioned twice in the book 'The Mortier Story': the instrument described at the bottom of p. 313 appears to be the same as the organ mentioned at the top of p .355. This organ was once owned by J.C. Bamford Excavators Ltd. in England; hence it was named the 'JCB Mortier'.

92-key Mortier orchestrion, rebuilt by Oscar Grymonprez, rented to the 'Hotel de Londres' in Gent
