Database Manager on October 30, 2004:

Restored Noel Mander, 1983. A typical portable organ of the box-organ type, with a very simple box case rather garishly painted. There are no front pipes, but only a fabric covering which has a stylized painting of pipes on it. Stops are controlled by levers on one end of the keyboard. The organ has a hand pumping mechanism controlled either by a foot lever operated by the player, or by leather straps operated by an assistant.
