The following detailed specification of the 1954 Tellers rebuild of the 1893 
Johnson and Son op 797 in St. Stanislaus RC Church is taken from the 2004 OHS 
Convention program which was held in 2004.  The primary reason this 
specification is up is so one can compare and contrast it to the original 1893 
specification, as well as the 2007 rebuild specification that was performed by 
Heritage Pipe Organs.
