"I prefer the upper speaker grill of the first version Orleans you have. More in harmony with the semi-circular design top of the door opening.  The one I have for the 1931 Orleans with Scott 2-Dial thus:Orleans%20with%20Scott%202-dial.JPG"

"Here are a couple close up shots of the front, with the doors open. I love how the doors have the cable "linkage" so they open in unison. Its little attention to details that makes Scott move above the rest! IMG_1890.JPG IMG_1891.JPG"
