"The really unusual organ of 1930 was the four-manual, twenty-eight rank Wurlitzer shipped to Union High School in Fullerton, California. It included a remote capture combination action and several rare ranks, including a 16' Viole d'Orchestre, 16' Oboe Horn, Viole Celestes sharp and flat, and a Philomela, an open wood stop with two mouths."
