Database Manager on September 20, 2012:

Identified through online information from T. Daniel Hancock. -- The Stopt Diapason, June 1980, reports that the organ was rebuilt by Walter Whitehouse 1979-80, and was originally a tracker (but had been electro-pneumatic before the Whitehouse rebuild). The article speculates that the original instrument might have been a Roosevelt, built for another location.
