The Dutch Wikipedia article about the building is very short, and does not mention the bells, though they are visible in a photo of the building.

A local page about the building recounts its history at greater length, and has a photo in which the bells are barely visible.

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