Database Manager on October 30, 2004:

Originally tubular with Slider chests. Electrified by Clark & Fenton c. 1925. Rebuilt in 1980 by Roche Organ Co. The Swell III Rank Mixture had been altered before the rebuild. It was the last major instrument to leave the Jardine factory, as the firm was dissolved in 1899. it was designed and voiced by Carlton C. Michell of England in the English Romantic Style.
