Re: Re: Baltimore Bell Foundry, Clampitt & Regester
Amazing what one finds on the internet! I was just in the bell tower (known at the church as the Christmas Tower) of Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Baltimore looking over the ringer mechanism, and observed that the bell was cast by “Clampitt & Regester, Baltimore 1854”. Did a search, and found this listing. I too would like to know more about this foundry. I took pictures, but can’t seem to figure out how to include them here. Also,there is a building on the southeast corner of Calvert and E Federal streets which is known as the Bell Foundry, just north of Mt Royal on Calvert. I don’t know if this was/is a bell foundry or they just liked the name?
