The French Wikipedia has a
of the wall-steeple over the northwest entrance to the building,
showing five conventional bells in individual openings.
A stair turret at the northwest corner of the building forms the west end
of the multiple bellcote, providing access to walkways across its back side.
The lower walkway extends to the keyboard room cantilevered on the east end
of the bellcote below the hemispherical bells.
The perspective view in Google Maps' overhead photography, at maximum zoom,
shows this unique installation quite well.
Where this work lies in the sequence of output of unknown bellfoundries,
in this region
and in the world.
