The Organ in the 1950s
This image was printed in the Illustrated London News c.1950 and shows the Great Soundboards
prior to dismantling for storage at The Palace, following the WWII damage.
Here is the main aspect of the instrument, taken in 1955.
The hall was being refurbished at the time, hence the dramatic scaffolding here at the south end.
