Paul R. Marchesano on December 22, 2020:

On March 12, 1904, the John Wanamaker store entered into an agreement to represent the Austin Organ Company in New York, Philadelphia, and surrounding terrority. Wanamaker ordered a total of six small organs that would range in size from eight to thirteen speaking stops. All of the organs would be suitable as "residence organs" as they had attached consoles and an automatic player. Moreover, all of the organs had identical specifications as to type of action, compass, and console controls. Five of the six organs (Op. 116, 117, 178, 179, and 192) were delivered to the New York store, and Op. 199 went to the Philadelphia store. Opus 179 and Opus 199 were identical.

Opus 192 had an attached stop key console of mahogany, a Swell box with 2½" thick walls, display pipes decorated in French leaf gold bronze, and 5" wind pressure. The organ was equipped with an aumatic player.

The organ was sold to the Briarcliff Lodge, Briarcliff, N.Y.
