      Same here. I can see the thumbnail of one photo but it won't enlarge and the other attachments only show the words "Attachment 281XX" here.

          Me too. I know Solovoxhumana has posted photos before, so user error shouldn't be the issue. Did you drag-and-drop, or use the Manage Attachments link in the Go Advanced entry form?

          If the problems persists, please let Admin know so he can fix it.

          On topic, from what I saw, a quite interesting find! A while ago there was a pipe organ in Bar Harbor for sale they said was a Skinner, but when I did more checking, I found out it was an organ pieced together from at least 3 (or more) builders.

          Thank you for sharing information about this organ!

            I tried again to edit them and no thumbnail would come up. Now, there are links shown for each photo and the photo does come up. I contacted the admin!

                In addition to the Salicional and Celeste, there's obviously a Dulciana in the Swell. I've heard this organ, and for its size, it's surprisingly versatile and robust. I'm the organist at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Portland, ME, and in 1919 Skinner installed a small instrument there--Opus 294--which is listed in the Aeolian-Skinner Archives but without any details. I'm guessing that it was very similar--if not identical--to the organ at St. Phillip's. It was replaced by a Rogers analog instrument in the early '70's, and this in turn was replaced by an Allen MDS-36 in the mid-90's.

                    My mistake, the Swell should read:

                    Gedeckt 8'
                    Salicional 8'
                    Dulciana 8'
                    Unda Maris 8'
                    Flute 4'
                    Tremolo
