The Arrival! 

Here, the main 3 phase compressor is unloaded.

The "Foundation" is set for the main chest. The large white pipe is the air feed from the compressor room. 

The entire Nave is covered with pipes!

Many are small, and arrive in cases.

Here is one of the many pipe beds. Each hole gets a pipe installed in it. 

The three story structure rises !

View of one of the pipe beds, now full.

The main console is set up. Later, the peddles are attached. This unit works like a giant telephone switchboard, controlling which air valves open to sound various pipes.

Here, one of the 16 foot pipes are installed.

The front of the chest is not a facade, these are actual working pipes as well.

The completed installation !
