Two articles about these bells, with photos (English translation provided)

The German Wikipedia article about the building has a section about the bells, which are itemized by note, weight and location.

Wikipedia photo of the bells
Wikipedia photo of the building including an occupied belfry

In the midst of a page of advertising is a slide show with photos of the building.  Unfortunately, none of them make clear which of the four corner towers holds these bells.

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