The House on the Rock Website has a Photo Gallery, in which most of the photos in Thumbnail Panel 8 show parts of the impressive Organ Room, where these bells are located.  Unfortunately, they do not appear in any of these photos.  Also, there is no longer any description of the various collections which constitute many of the unique or unusual attractions here.

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