Historical Notes: The organ was an electrically powered, Japanese made Mininucci organ which Mr Ross had just delivered. It was donated by Derek and Ione Turner of Paekakariki, and replaced the sister's old Chicago Cottage organ which was thought to be between 80 and 90 years old. The old organ was to be given to the National Museum.
