Andrew E Henderson on January 19, 2022:

This instrument reused pipework and the facade of the previous A. S. Vogt Organ. The recital was dedicated with a recital featuring the church's choir and organist, Mr. Thompson, on Sunday, March 2, 1919. The organ was undoubtedly problematic from the beginning as mentioned in further issues of The Thorold Post, leading to the organ's removal and replacement by a second-hand unit Warren organ in 1922.
