I created a photo album and placed photos and a drawing of the 
current three bells of Old Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, located 
in San Luis Obispo, (Alta) California.

The "Gloria" and "Joy" bells were cast by the firm of Manuel Vargas 
in 1818 in Lima, Peru. They (a total of 5 actually) went into service 
in 1820.

The "Sorrow" bell is believed to have been cast in 1877 in San 
Francisco, perhaps at the Globe Foundry.

If anyone has any additional knowlege of these bells, I would 
certainly appreciate hearing about them.

They will be replaced later this year by 5 new bells from Petit & 
Fritsen that were procured via Verdin.

Thank you all.
