The late model Style 190 Wurlitzer was installed in 1929 in the Fox Theatre in Appleton, Wisconsin. The theatre was renamed the "Rio" Theatre during the 1930s.

After Ayars death, the organ was initially slated to be installed in the Smithsonian Institution. When that no longer became an option, it was moved to the Wanamaker store in spring 2007.

The pipework was installed in a chamber that was added to the side of Ayar's house, and spoke into the house through two openings behind bookshelves. Ayars wished to keep the organ as original as possible, which facilitated the historic restoration.
