The church Website has a small color photo of the building and tower in the banner at the top of all pages after the splash, and a larger one (though dim and distorted) at the bottom of the menu panel on all pages after the splash. There is a page about the bells, but the accompanying photo was missing when the page was visited in Nov.'04.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Paccard bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
