Jeff Scofield on January 14, 2021:

From Tom Walters. -- Modified by Walsh & Tidwell in 2001. The original twin 1868 Roberts cases remain. The organ is behind the left-hand façade. Nothing is behind the right-hand façade. The small Haskell Echo (8' Flute, 8' Viol d'Orchestre, and 8' Vox Humana) may still have been included in the tonal scheme of the W&T job. No known tonal changes to the main instrument.
