Apologies if there has beendiscussion on this particular subject before.

Irecently came across a G&J bell at Birkenhead Docks (N 53° 23' 55" 
W003° 01' 8" OS Grid: SJ 32351 89558).  The inscription indicates it was 
cast in 1948and the top has the inscription of The Gas Accumulator 
Company London.  Diameter is around 2’.  There is a solenoid type hammer 
(I doubt ifthis works) and the bell is mounted in a frame at ground 
level so easilyaccessible.

The only reference to the GasAccumulator Company I can find is that they 
appear to have been based inBrentford, Middlesex so, if this is the 
case, why is this bell in Birkenhead?

I have included a couple of photographswith this post but not sure if 
this will appear when distributed to list members.

Can anyone on this group
