Tim Bovard on March 18, 2022:

This Hinners Organ was likely installed in a now non-existant building that belonged to the same congregation, which was destroyed by fire and ultimately replaced with their current structure (ca. 1990's?) which now houses a ca. 1884 Geo. Jardine & Son 1m instrument, Database ID=32223.

Pictures included in this entry are the Jardine organ as it currently exists, per that database entry.
