*Links:

The church Website has a small photo of the tower in the upper left corner of all pages.  Next to it is a tiny photo of a chimer at work.  Under Music, there is a page about the bells, with several photos. The Photos page has a link to a 2-page set of Flickr photos taken during the renovation, and a History page (under "Our 250th Year") mentions the donor of the chime.

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