Vintage Salem Morning

Welcome to another Vintage Salem Posts. Every Wednesday we will post another image from our home town’s past. If you have any other images of the buildings or locations we offer each Wednesday, please share them below.

Wurlitzer Organ Paramount Theater Salem MA

Wurlitzer Organ in the Paramount Theater on Essex Street

Now replaced by the East India Mall, the Paramount used to be a Salem favorite with it’s organ that would rise out of the floor to provide the sound effects and score to the movies during the silent era. I was asked recently, ‘were did the organ go?’, but I had no answer. Do you?

Send us your favorite vintage Salem photos to and we will post them and give you a shout out! Also if you have something to add about the photo from family histories, your readings, or your memories, please share them below in the comments section. Do you know where the organ is today?
