Database Manager on June 08, 2008:

Identified through on-line information from Floyd Higgins. -- This organ was originally in the Austin Residence at 55 Oxford Street in Hartford, Connecticut. Factory legend is that the blower motor was wired into the feed wires from the street above the meter. The console is four manuals, but as I recall, the instrument is really a healthy two manual organ with far fewer than 57 ranks. The last time I played it, it was functioning fine.
