Database Manager on February 15, 2009:

Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- This organ was built for Sherman Clay & Co. of San Francisco. The five ranks are: First Open Diapason, Second Open Diapason, Stopped Diapason, Salicional, and Dulciana. The Great 8' First Open Diapason and the bottom 12 pipes of the 16' Bourdon extension are the only unexpressive pipes. The rest of the instrument is housed in a large swellbox behind a 5-sectional pipe fence facade of 61 gold-painted pipes arranged: 12-9-19-9-12. These five sections are distinguised from one another by the heights and diameters of the pipes. The first 17 pipes of the Great 8' First Open Diapason are en façade. At an unknown time (believed to be the 1980's) Harold B. Curryer of Spokane, Washington installed a new Peterson relay and combination action to replace the worn-out Wicks phosphor bronze original systems. Documented October 9, 1996.
