Yes. The previous octave were rehung in 1889 by Taylors in a high-
sided A-frame, with wooden beams top and bottom. When a tenor and 
treble were added in 1893, a cast-iron H-pattern side member was 
added for the tenor. The treble was hung above on a pair of wooden 
beams. This frame was (unfortunately) retained in the 1999 re-hang.
