I shall have to look for this one as I know of no bell on the main post
office, which is located just around the corner from the Holy Rosary
There are many many ex-locomotive steel bells in Canada, especially in
Western Canada. They have a very squashed profile, i.e. with a very
short waste. Fortunately my locomotive bell is a brass one cast by the
CPR for a Royal Hudson Locomotive - but with no inscription on it. It
came complete with its yoke and lever. It weighs 200 lbs approx.
Meanwhile, back to work.
