NOTE:  The above specification is taken from "The Organ", Vol 3, No. 12  (April, 1924).  The accompanying photograph shows a row of 21 stopkeys labelled 1-21 above the Solo manual, and one coloured tab (Tuba Off ???).  These are not listed in the specification.  They were most likely to have been ventils.  The organ was enlarged in 1927 and rebuilt and modernised in 1931 - see the later specification.

Stopkey colours:  reeds - red, couplers - blue, percussions and traps - brown, others - white

 

NOTE:  The instrument was unplayable when the specification was noted.  Hence it is not possible to detail the toe pistons or the tremulants.  A blank space showed where one Accompaniment stopkey was missing.  The organ had been "rebuilt" in 1932, but it is believed that no specification changes were made.

The above specification is as quoted in "Journal of the Cinema Organ Society" for August, 1959.  It seems unusual that the 16ft extensions of the Diapason and Flute are not available on at least one of the manuals - this may be a misprint in the published specification.

Pistons:

8 thumb pistons to lower, 8 to upper.  9 toe pistons to effects

 

Balanced swell pedals:

1 swell pedal, 1 general crescendo pedal

 

NOTE:  The stopkey layout was unusual, the main curved rail being set out from left to right: Lower - Pedal - Upper, with an additional stright rail above the upper manual.  The stops were coloured red, white, blue, black, yellow and brown in a symmetrical pattern so that each half of the curved rail was a mirror image of the other.

 

The organ built by Spurden Rutt for the Palace Theatre, Slough, is believed to have been identical.
