Database Manager on February 21, 2013:

This entry describes alterations to an existing organ. Identified by James R. Stettner, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- This was the electrification of the existing Schuelke organ - presumably on its original windchests - and retaining the side-saddle console on the left side of the case.
