Photo of former city administrator Alexander Mayer with the carillon he discovered in Bayreuth, which is now on the town hall tower.

The Wiki for the city of Fürth (in German) has a section about the bells of the city hall.  There are also photos of the building, and a history of the previous bells.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Eijsbouts bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
