*Links:

A news article (Sep.2015) about the removal of the bells for renovation says that the first bells were installed in 1921.

The Cathedral Website does not mention or picture the unusual tower, and has no information about the bells.

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