The owner's Website supposedly has a section about the carillon, but it is blank.

The DGV page about this carillon has no photos; details are incomplete.

The Wikimedia Commons category for this carillon has four closeup photos of the bells.  In the broader category for the building, six of 25 photos show the carillon, which is at the extreme eastern end of the block-long south facade of the building.

A Waymarking page for these bells has 3 photos.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Schilling bellfoundries, in this region and in the world.
