Database Manager on February 28, 2007:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- Uncertain if this is original or perhaps second-hand. Does not appear on the Wicks list for Portland, though opus 528 is listed for Sherman, Clay & Co. The console seems to clearly be Wicks, though the stoptablets and interior mechanism are much newer Klann components.
