The Marr & Colton organ from Loew’s was purchased in the 1950’s by Robert Griswold, who moved it to Schenectady and installed it in a huge structure attached to his father’s funeral home. I was told that Bob Griswold died when he was still a young man, before he finished the restoration of the organ. Does anyone know what ever became of this instrument?

When I was in high school in the 1950’s, the Strand was owned by a gentleman named Rapp, whose son Harvey went to school with me.
