Philadelphia (PA) (Pennsylvania), Macy's („Wanamaker”) Store, Orgel / organ 6 Manuale, 463 Ranks, 374 Register (+ 17 Ext. + 16 Tr.), 28.522 Pfeifen (+ 243 Pfeifen / 3 Ranks / 3 Register in "Reserve" im Stentor-Werk)

1904 erbaut von Harris / Los Angeles Art Organ Company (USA, Los Angeles) für die Kansas City Convention Hall, wo sie jedoch nie aufgestellt wurde, sondern nur ein Mal in St. Louis auf der
Louisiana Purchase Exposition als Ausstellungsstück präsentiert wurde - bereits damals war sie mit 140 Registern und 10.000 Pfeifen die größte Orgel der Welt.
1909 Kauf der eingelagerten Orgel durch Wanamaker; bis 1911 Einbau in den 7-stöckigen "Grand Court" des Kaufhauses durch Fleming & Till. Aufbau einer eigenen 40 Mann starken Orgelbauerfirma
unter der Leitung von Fleming & Till, die die Orgel laufend wartete, reparierte und erweiterte. Bis 1917, als ein neuer 5-manualiger Spieltisch eingeweiht wurde, war das Instrument auf 232 Register
und ca. 17.000 Pfeifen angewachsen.
1923 und 1930 wurden durch die hauseigenen Orgelbauer weitere Teilwerke hinzugefügt (Great Chorus, String Organ und Orchestral Organ) und die Orgel damit zur heutigen Größe ausgebaut,
inklusive des 6-manualigen Spieltischs. Nach dem 2. Weltkrieg wurde die Orgel immer seltener genutzt und die eigens gegründete Wanamaker Organ Company aufgelöst.
Für die Orgel bedeutete dieser jahrzehntelange Wartungsausfall auch einen sukzessiven Ausfall einiger Teilwerke und deren Spielbarkeit.
Seit einigen Jahren wird die große Orgel von Quimby (USA, Warensburg) gewartet und restauriert. Die Restaurierung war 2004 zum Großteil abgeschlossen (Orchestral Organ steht noch aus).
