[1st Presbyterian Church, Kilgore]

*It is the en chamade (horizontal) trumpet rank at 1st Presbyterian Church, Kilgore, reputedly the first-such stop installed on an organ in the United States (1949).  This picture was used heavily in Aeolian-Skinner promotions, including on the albums of the company's King of Instruments LP series, coveted items in any organ-lover’s collection in the mid 20th century (and still!).
