Re: Re: C S Bell Hillsboro Ohio No. 4
The early CS bell is exactly like mine which I posted photos of in this forum a few months ago. Yours is only the third one I’ve seen in 5 decades of bell interest. That Meneely is a beauty and it’s small size, wheel, and that it was stored near the school make it the likely bell in your early photo. You are fortunate to have located it. Being a high end bell (bronze) I doubt it was purchased with the paycheck of a country school teacher. They were paid very little and usually received room and board from a local family as part of their compensation. Good luck with your project.
