St. John's United Bells

These bells are in the 1920 St John's United Church belfry at Willow & Windsor Streets, Halifax.

There's a caption for each one; you can hover-over the thumbnail or click on it to see it.

Technical data: Traditional chime of 13 bells. Pitch of heaviest bell is F in the middle octave. The whole instrument was installed in 1920 with bells made by Gillett & Johnston.

I was bell technician from the late '90s until the church closed ca 2013. These pics were taken a week before Easter 2001.

Here's the TowerBells.Org page for the chime, and here's the AllChimes.Org entry.
