Updated by William Dunklin, naming this as the source of information: a vintage postcard.
A postcard from ca. 1960 shows the organ console at far right as looking at the altar. Gothic inspired grill work, typical of Moller of the post WWII era fills both right side arch facing the nave and the arch facing the chancel. The arches on the left side of the chancel are blank. The church's website in 2017 shows the same grill work on the right side and matching grill work now filling the arches on the left.
