The New Victoria was Bradford's first 'super' cinema, and its magnificence was never equalled, as by the time the Odeon opened in December 1938, and the Ritz in May 1939, auditoria had taken on a more modern appearance, although many of them were handsome in their own way. It was also the original home of this fabulous instrument. Despatched from Wurlitzer's North Tonawanda factory on 20th June 1930, it was a Style 220 Special with ten units of pipes. They were: Harmonic Tuba, Diaphonic Diapason, Tibia Clausa, Clarinet, Kinura, Orchestral Oboe, Violin, Violin Celeste, Concert Flute and Vox Humana, although at a later date the Kinura was replaced by a more useful Krumet rank.
