Paul R. Marchesano on December 25, 2021:

Blank knob, currently stationary, was likely bellows signal. Original feeders and pump handle gone (slot in side of case and indicator marker extant), valve wheel for water motor extant on front of case to right of keydesk. Winding altered at some point -- feeders and pump handle as well as water motor connection removed at undetermined time. Chimes added, hanging on right and left sides of case, chimes keyboard mounted awkwardly below and forward of keyboard. These appear to be the only alterations to the organ.
