*Links:

The ARPAC Website presents much more detail than we can here, though it is all in French.  It has a photo of the building.

The French Wikipedia article about the town has a photo of the town center in which the town hall predominates; but the building is not specifically mentioned.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Petit & Fritsen bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
