In the auditorium photo above, note Robert Morton organ console in the orchestra pit. The "sidecar" swell boxes and vertical swell shades are clearly visible on right side of the console. The distinctive three-panel console face suggests that this organ was most likely a Robert Morton Style 39. These organs were designed to fit in the orchestra pit with no architectural pipe chambers required.
