    I do not have any recent pictures. Here is what it looked like in my living room in Morgantown WV on its 90th birthday in 1974. We brought it with us when we moved to Massachusetts in 1978 but it got placed on a screen porch, where it suffered harm.

    It had been in service from 1884 until 1936 when it was replaced by a slave movement driven from the pair of regulators in the basement of the building. It remined idle in the tower until 1973 when I purchased it during the tower renovation. I revived it and had it on display in my living room for several years.
