Notes: Removed by Brantley Duddy in 1987 and sold to the Museum Center Foundation, Cincinnati; installed in the rotunda of the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal. "The divisions are hidden behind facades resembling ticket counters toward the back of the Rotunda. Solo, Great and Pedal are located immediately to the left of the concourse, Choir and Swell to the right. The yet-to-be-completed Antiphonal will be located near the entrance to the museum." In addition to the former Philadelphia organ, members of the Crosley family and the Franciscan Health Care System provided E. M. Skinner Op. 726 (Powell Crosley, Jr., Residence) to be combined with Op. 660.
