Station 16 Bell
I just recieved this picture in an E-mail. Apparently McShane Bell Foundry is not wasting any time in restoring the bell removed from Station 16 yesterday.
It looks as though the bell has been at least through the first step of cleaning.
The names on the surface are much clearer now and it appears as if the severe weathering has been removed. My guess is this was done with glass beading or sand blasting.
I hope more photos will come my way as the work progresses. I will post as much information as possible concerning the progress of this project.
