Identified through on-line information from Jeff Scofield. -- This was a rebuild and tonal revision of the music hall's 1925 4/30 Wangerin, retaining much Wangerin pipework; a further eight ranks were prepared for. Sold in 1971 to the College Heights SDA Church, Lacombe, Alberta; in 1997, it was dismantled and replaced by Casavant 3/45 Op. 3760.
