From: Neil Hunter, Jan. 2004

Opus 2040 has ben removed from Dr. King's residence, and put in storage as of 9 Jan 2004 - the organ is in fine condition except for rat/possum urine stains on top of all wood - found dead possums and rats in three of the 5 installed 32' diaphones. Organ was removed complete with original cables - what a job, very awkward.

To dispell a long running rumour - seems this organ wa believed to be originally for the Palais St. Kilda - well not so - found an original tag on one of the cables stating that it was built for the Regent Brisbane - date on tag from memory 3/19/29 - also in the main (7 rank) chest is written the word Brisbane.
