*Links:

The French Wikipedia article about this town has a photo of the city hall; the accompanying text identifies the tunes which are played automatically at the hour, the half-hour, and the intervening quarters.
The related article about the building doesn't mention the tunes, but does assert that there are 15 bells.

The Dutch Wikipedia article about the town has a different photo of the building, which clearly shows some of the bells in the lantern; but it does not mention them.

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