The Cathedral Website has a small photo of the building in the upper left corner of every page.  The History page mentions the chime and hand-wound tower clock, though the name and city of the bellfounder are mis-spelled [Dec'09].

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Meneely (Watervliet) bellfoundry.
