*Links:

The church Website uses a drawing of the building as a backdrop for several pages (or parts thereof).  There is a photo of the building and its stumpy tower on the Directions page.

An article about these bells has some good information, but some of its photos are of a different instrument.  Although that fact is mentioned, it isn't very prominently done, and could easily be missed.

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