Notes

  • Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- Listed in: The Organ, July 1893, Vol. II, No. 3, pg. 68, "Mixtures" column. Organist was Mr. Wray Taylor. (Database Manager. October 28, 2006)
  • Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- A pipe organ with some form of electric action still exists at this church behind a pipe fence facade that appears to be old. (Database Manager. November 7, 2008)
  • Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- An e-mail from the present church organist revealed that the organ was a Bevington & Sons from England. It was destroyed in a fire in 1900 when an outbreak of bubonic plague appeared in an adjacent Chinese section of town, and authorities opted to burn contaminated items. Sparks from the fires ignited the wooden twin steeples, and all was destroyed except the exterior walls. (Database Manager. November 8, 2008)
