An archived regional council article about the Clydebank Town Hall reports installation of the clock, Westminster chimes and "carillon" in 1931, 2 years after the bells were cast.  The sentence about the clock and bells really belongs early in the second paragraph, not in the middle of the third paragraph.

A regional council Website has a page about the history of the town hall, with historic and current photos of the building, and mention of installation of the clock and bells in 1931.

A local publicity Website has a description and photo of the building; a much larger image of the building is available.

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