A brief annoucement of the impending installation of this organ appeared in The Philadelphia Inquirer, Sept 25, 1908, Page 3: "A new pipe organ is to be placed in St. Andrew's P. E. Church and an organ chamber will be built in the chancel."
Updated through online information from Russell Meyer. -- 9 of the original 12 ranks sat on electro-pneumatic chests of the type designed by Haskell while he was superintendent of Hilbourne Roosevelt's Philadelphia shop. The remaining 3 ranks sat on an electro-pneumatic slider chest whose pallets were activated pneumatically through tubes from the main chest. The sliders had pneumatic motors. The swell shade linkage was mechanical. A new console was installed in 1950. In 1959 chimes were added. In 1962, 2-1/2 ranks totalling 136 pipes were added. In 1987 a solid-state combination was installed. In 1997, the organ was removed, and 9 of the ranks plus the chimes and a large reservoir were incorporated into a new instrument at the church. The original facade was retained with alterations to the woodwork as non-speaking pipes.
Identified through online information from Russell Meyer. -- I incorporated several ranks from this organ into a new organ at the same church in 1997 while I was organist there.
