According to the Junchen opus lists and OHS database, the Kerrisdale Theatre had a 2/15 Casavant (opus # 1103) installed in 1925. The instrument was relocated in 1958 to St. Luke's Anglican Church, Victoria BC.
Kerrisdale Casavant console
According to Bruce Hargreaves of Victoria, the console "now has an oak surround but the key desk and bench appear original..." The installation is "...a bit unusual as it has a swell box on both the Swell and Great. Quite a mellow sound in this historic old church which dates from the late 1800's."
