An original installation. Identified by Joe Boehnlein, based on personal knowledge of the organ.

This instrument was purchased ca. 1927 and installed in the original Raasch Funeral Home on the corner of N. 12th. St. and W. Garfield Ave. in Milwaukee. In 1960 it was re-located to the new Raasch Funeral Home at 7709 W. Burleigh Street. The organ is used for Services held at the funeral home and is in its original condition still using its original blower, switchstack and relays and pneumatic pistons.
