Before the Electric Fan

This is a video of a pipe organ with hand pumped bellows from Castromocho, Spain. In this age where pipe organs are a rare enough find, this is extraordinary. I would love to know how many of these still exist.

Closest I've seen is St. Joseph's in Cumberland RI - an 1889-built W.K. Adams II/11 tracker. There is one lever still attached to the case, though it no longer functions, and uses an electric blower.
