Mechanical Key Action, Stops, and Swell Pedal
It also has two preset lever registrational assist pedals: one to the left of the Swell Pedal which is set to draw the softer stops, and one to the right of the Swell Pedal for Full Organ.

The instrument is in excellent condition, and appears to be from the late 1800s - very early 1900s. It was originally hand pumped, but now has an electric blower.  The hand pump lever is still usable.
