1870's Ryder Organ in Newport

There's a lot of "junque" around the organ naturally, since its in someone's garage.

Some of these facade pipes are actually part of the Open Diapason rank, but they do not speak well... languids sagging severely. Kind of like the ones at CMC. Could be fixed, but might be easier to obtain replacements and leave the facade pipes in place just as "dummies" for show. The 15' height is at the top of that middle pipe. As you can see, the height does drop off quite a bit at the sides, and even more so at the back. The ceiling here in the garage is sloping, and the top facade pipe is actually touching the ceiling.
