Database Manager on October 30, 2004:

Note that exposition records don't mention any Jardine demonstration organ. The organ is quite powerful, and it was obviously built as showpiece organ, so it is thought that perhaps the organ was built for some other exposition or show. Sold to Congregational Ch., Ironton, OH. The interior contains some interesting graffiti, including a drawing of a face, and the name Dud (for Dudley Jardine) next to it.
