ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

From: Ray Thursby, November 2008

St Sophia's Greek Orthodox Church -- sometimes irreverently called "St Skouras's" -- in L.A. had the Style 235 Special (with added 16' Tibia, Post Horn and Dulciana) from the Fox Figueroa Theatre in L.A. This organ was notable as the instrument on which Buddy Cole got his start.

I was in the church to inspect the organ once many years ago and don't remember the setting looking anything like the photo. As I recall, the console was in the choir loft, and that was pretty plain. According to the stopkeys, it still had the Post Horn, though the Kinura, taps and some percusssions seemed to be gone. I think the shell had a gold finish.

Never heard the organ. It was later parted out.
