Patricia Theatre auditorium, date unknown
In the audiorium photo above, note Robert Morton organ console installed in the orchestra pit. Also "sidecar" swell boxes and vertical swell shades clearly visible on right side on console.
The distinctive three-panel console face indicates 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.
