*Links:

The church Website opens with a photo of the building.  A history page has a small photo of three of the bells, showing the pusher solenoids which move the original (quarter-turned) clappers.  Another small photo appears to show part of the original mechanical action (now unused).  The tenor bell (on top of the chime frame) may still be swingable.

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