The Wicks Direct Electric action was created in 1916, after this organ was built. The 1914 organ, replacing a tracker instrument, had the "latest" in technology -- namely, tubular pneumatic action. Invented in 1845, tubular pneumatic organs were rarely built after 1920 (Wikipedia), so this was one of the last Wicks organs built with that action.
