I was antique shopping and found these player ads.  The first is for the Tel-Electric player, which could be installed on any piano and controlled remotely via a small box.  It's from the World's Work Advertiser, 1912.

The next is from Etude magazine, 1916, for the Kranich & Bach player grand.  This is the foot-impelled player.  It's very interesting to see, because the piano has no basement.
