mostly for gdmusumeci but perhaps of general interest

Instrument panel of one of the Archers:

From left to right, top row: clock, airspeed indicator, artifical horizon (vacuum gyro instrument), altimeter, nav head #1 (VOR/Localizer/Glideslope).

From left to right, bottom row: pilot/copilot intercom, turn coordinator (electric gyro instrument), directional gyro (vacuum gyro instrument), vertical speed indicator (partially hidden behind the control yoke), nav head #2 (VOR/Localizer).

Below that is a row of engine and fuel gauges. The extreme left edge of the avionics stack is visible on the far right. The big red switch is the master electric power. On the left horn of the pilot's yoke is a black thumb switch which controls the electric trim, and a red pushbutton which is the radio transmit switch.
