Database Manager on March 01, 2007:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This was the reinstallation of the existing 1883 Hook & Hastings from the former edifice. It was installed behind the front arch with the stenciled Pedal Bourdon pipe sides pulled 90 degrees forward and parallel to the facade to fill-out the expanse. What appears to be 11 added "tomato can" dummies were added behind and above the original 13 "tomato can" dummies.
