*Links:

Photo of building and brief specification of the bells, from Glockenspiel USA.

The chain store Website has no information specific to this store.  Formerly it also provided an audio clip of bells playing, but that seems to have been removed.

A waymarking page has a gallery of photos of the tower, including a closeup of the belfry which shows not only the large hour bell but also the tiny bells of the automatic carillon.  But the visitor who waymarked this only noticed the big clock bell.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Petit & Fritsen bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
