Bell Frames

Another image from my recent visit to the Whitechapel Bell Foundry. The frames needed for bells that will hang in a bell tower somewhere. The double spoke in the middle is to enable the frame to come apart to get up the narrow staircase of the majority of bell towers. The rope will wind around the outside then be bound around the rectangle piece in the middle so it is perfectly balance and controllable for the bell ringer.

From the thumbnail I was expecting to read about beer barrels, Mo. Took me a while to find the rectangular piece ... Saturday nights do not agree with me!

I once visited the Whitechapel Bell Foundry. It was like entering another world.
