*Links:

The Dutch Wikipedia article about the town has a photo of the Stadhuis and its bell-filled cupola.

The city Website has a photo of the Stadhuis as part of the complex background of its home page (scroll down); notice also the storks nesting there.  There is contact information, but nothing about the bells in the cupola.

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