*Links:

The Cathedral Website has photos of the building in the Photo Gallery (reached from the Welcome page).  There is a small photo of the tower on a Brief History page, and the gallery of larger photos can be also reached from there.  A jaggy photo of the building is on the last page of the PDF version of the Cathedral brochure on Meeting and Performance Space (found from the About CCC page).  But there is no information about the bells.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Meneely (Watervliet) bellfoundry.
