Updated by John Ball.
The picture that you have here is not the AB Felgemaker that was at Trinity UMC in Madison, IN. Very similar, but I do have a copy of the organ's picture. It had draw knob console. Also, that is not the Trinity building.

Updated through online information from John C. Ball. -- Felgemaker was enlarged and electrified by Kilgen in the 1940s, then rebuilt by Steiner in the 1970s, and then a new organ by Goulding and Wood in the 1980s was built retaining some of the Felgemaker pipes as well as Kilgen's pipes. Now 3 man and 42 ranks.
