The church Website has a photo of the tower in a rotating series on the home page, a larger photo on the About Us page, and a historic photo on the Our History page in that section.  But there is no mention of this chime.

A news clipping from 1922 identifies this instrument as a memorial for the late Dr. Charles Little, pastor for 49 years at this church.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the J.C.Deagan Company.
