From Andrew Scanlon:
I played this organ many times during my high school and college years as a substitue organist.
Many funerals and summer sub work. The organ was in almost original condition as installed by Laws in 1920s but when the church was renovated in late 1990's, Thad Outerbridge installed new blower and did a lot of mechanical work, re-leathering, etc.
Console was in poor shape but playable.
There is an echo division behind the high altar. At that time it was also fully playable.
