Jim Stettner on February 09, 2021:

This was a 7-rank, Style E instrument originally built for the Vitagraph Theatre in Chicago in 1924. It was relocated to the River-Lake Tabernacle of Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1929 by an unknown person or firm. It was later relocated in 1973 to the St. Louis Park, Minnesota residence of Don & Janice Thiese; and again in 2012 here to the residence of Fred Nagle in Hudson, Wisconsin where it is stored. The toy counter is reportedly missing.
