A tourism page (in German) includes a brief description of the glockenspiel on the former post office building in Zellerfeld, but no photo.

The Wikimedia Commons category for the building has 8 photos of the building and one of the descriptive sign.

Video (3:20) — two moving figures (miners) go up and down a pair of man-lifts.

The first of three photos of this chime is part of a slide show about the larger glockenspield at Clausthal University.

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