Source: The Diapason, November 1923.

The stop list in The Diapason wasn't too clear about the Solo and Echo divisions. It just showed merely 'Gamba' for the stop name, but usually a Gamba Celeste was paired up with the Cello. Also, looking at the stops, it would seem that the Echo division was made up only of the Vox Humana - not even an 8' Night Horn.
