Somewhere I lost the thread for this one, but I believe that the bells
in question were for Christ Church, Victoria, and nothing to do with
Vancouver HRC is simple, 6,7 & 8 are 1900 and 1-5 are 1906. Bells first
rung on Easter Sunday 1907. However, no dedication date that I am aware of.
AFAIK all the St James' bells in Granville, Vancouver, by Taylors are of
the same date.
I guess that it is about time we did a bell registry for North America
