NOTES
The is an original installation. It is a standard 'Portable' in a case with dummy half-
round wooden facade pipes painted gold and a detached console.

In 1958, Balcom and Vaughan extended the organ case at the back and added 2 ranks: a
used Aeoline and Celeste on electro-mechanical chests. On the Great, the 2-2/3' Quint
and 2' Super octave – both from the Salicet rank – were sacrificed for the additions.

In 2015, the property was sold for more high density living development. The status
of the organ is unknown and presumed destroyed.
