My impression was - not much, and it has been generally referred to as an Aeolian-Skinner organ, rather than E.M. It gave me a = start to hear it referred to as a Skinner, but there may be more truth in that than I realize.   Here is the note from my first edition of Kinzey & Lawn, and there may = well be more in the later edition, which I did not buy at last Summer's OHS Convention because I spent all my money there on John Henderson's latest edition!   "Skinner, Opus 230. 4 manual, Great, Swell, Choir, Solo, Echo, & Pedal - 1914. Echo moved to front and combination action expanded in 1938; rebuilt as three manual in 1955 as #230A; Great, Positif-Choir, Swell, Pedal; Extant" (not any more!).

Can we still call it a Skinner?   Yep. Too bad about the Echo pipes, and too even badder about the Klann = console (though isn't the original stored somewhere, awaiting restoration?), but = TONALLY it's been the blessed recipient of "benign neglect" ... nobody had the = money or the interest to "baroque" it, unlike Trinity Cathedral's Skinner, which was = made such a mess of that it was eventually discarded.   Have you ever gotten to HEAR Public Hall? I never did ... the console was = already cut loose by the time I came on the scene, though my roommate HAD played = it for a high school graduation or something ... HE said it was GLORIOUS, at least = onstage .... he particularly mentioned the French Trumpet; and I was gone from = Cleveland by the time Michael Murray convinced the authorities to get it playing again.   > I have several genuine Skinner pipes standing in the corner.
