"Behind the facade (altered) of the 1891 Roosevelt. Replaced by Aeolian-Skinner 1435 in 1963, which retained 6 ranks. Remainder sold for $4000 and moved to McLean Baptist, Jackson Ave., Memphis, TN. Choir division never installed there - pipework was lying in the chambers. Poor installation. Existed there until at least he mid-1970's."
