Notes: The following is from Nathan Smith regarding the photo:  "Here is a picture of the music room that the organ console is located in.  The organ speaks through a wooden lattice-look grille in the floor just in front of the stairs seen in the picture.  You can see part of the console in the picture.  On the left jamb you see the Pedal, Great and Swell knobs.  On the right jamb, you see the Solo division, with the Swell portion on the left and Great on the right.  Below the player, you will find the standard set of player controls and couplers.  Besides being three manuals, another special feature of this console is that it has typical full Skinner capture combination action.  Although there are no generals, each manual division has six pistons and the pedal has 4.  It is said that the organ was not originally meant to have a player, but that Mr. Warner passed away shortly after the contract was signed and the player was requested by Mrs. Warner and installed.  There is a substantial collection of rolls with this organ, and the organ plays both by hand and by roll very nicely.  Today, the room looks almost identical to what you see in the picture, the only change being a darker-colored paint on the ceiling."
