Database Manager on October 18, 2016:

Identified through online information from Gary Wood. -- This entry describes the rebuild of an existing pipe organ.
Organ is not playable. Console is disconnected and stored nearby. Pipes are mix of van Dinter and Schaeffer work. Many pipes removed and thrown on floor to make room for electronic organ speakers. Pipework heavily damaged. Large pedal pipes at rear of organ still intact. Original organ case and facade pipes extant. Blower still in place.
