Jim Stettner on November 13, 2020:

This entry represents the installation of an existing organ to a new owner/home. The organ was originally built for the Boston Conservatory of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. When it was declared surpus and offered for sale, it was acquired by Mr. Robert Heatley - Managing Director of Austalian Pipe Organs - and instaled by him in his home in Melbourne, Australia. After his passing in 2019, the organ was acquired by Mr. Robert Helfrich and moved to and installed in his home in Toorak, Victoria, Asutralia by Australian Pipe Organs in 2020.
