WESTMINSTER CATHEDRAL
This photograph (which is part of a much larger picture) must have been snapped in or after 1913. This is because the white frames for the Stations of the Cross are in situ (and visible at bottom left). These were installed in 1913. At top right is the Apse organ which, in view of the date, must have been the instrument by Lewis & Co. Note the exposed pipes (i.e. there is no case) and, behind them, the swell box. The larger pipes (which are not clearly visible here) stood on the floor at either side of the instrument. The console is in the same location but concealed by a screen. It is not known if the console was attached or detached or whether it faced east or west. Note that the Choir stalls appear somewhat rudimentary. The most important thing this picture shows is that the Lewis organ was in one place and not divided. The two-case arrangement, together with the more robust Choir stalls, came about in 1926, when Willis built the mega-console to control both the Apse and Grand organs. This console was sited where the organ is seen in this picture.
