ORGAN 1/1 -- Estey Organ Company

----------

Estey Organ Company

Brattleboro, Vt. – Opus 1909 (1921)
Electro-pneumatic action
2 manuals, 9 stops, 9 ranks
This organ was built in 1921 by the Estey Organ Company for the Ridgewood Lodge No. 710 F. & A.M. of Ridgewood, Brooklyn. The Ridgewood neighborhood is now a part of the borough of Queens.
The following specification is from the files of Louis F. Mohr & Co., an organ service concern in the area. Mohr noted (on Jan 14, 1936) that the console was downstairs while the organ was in the gallery, and there was an oak case with 43 front pipes in gold. The organ had a manual compass of 61 notes, and a 30-note A.G.O. pedalboard. Pipecounts were not given but are suggested, based on similar Estey organs of the era. ----------
