Database Manager on October 17, 2008:

Updated through on-line information from Thomas Annand. -- Although the instrument is essentially as originally installed, the original hydraulic (water) motor has been replaced by an electric blower (same location), these despite the presence of a Bellows Signal register. There has been substantial damage to many pipes. Though playable, the instrument is compromised by the condition of the pipework and some mechanical linkages. The typescript stoplist is correct except for date. This organ was installed in December 1891 and is the work of Samuel R. Warren's son, Charles S. Warren of Toronto.
