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
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.
