ON ESSEX STREET
Now replaced by the East India Mall, the Paramount used to be a Salem favorite with its 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post them and give you a shout out! Also if you have something to add to 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? Let us know in the comments section.
Come back every Wednesday morning to see another glimpse into Salem’s past.
