Database Manager on October 30, 2010:

Identified through on-line information from William Maddox. -- The instrument is a three-rank unit organ of twenty-one stops over two manuals and pedals. It has thick-cut ivory keys and chest, tremulant and Bourdon 16' 1-24 of mahogany. The casework and console are in blond oak. The original Pedal Quint 5 1/3' has been rewired as a 2' Flute, and the lowest octave of the Principal 8' has been rewired as both Bourdon 8' and Dulciana 8' rather than Bourdon 8' and Principal 4'.
