The maximum file size you can upload is 1MB
The simplest website for resizing that I have found is …
Browse to where your picture is located on your computer
Select your picture
Click Open, image will upload to picresize website
Click Continue to Edit Picture
Leave all default settings as they are
Scroll down to bottom
Enter 1000 in JPG Max Filesize box
Click I’m Done, Resize My Picture
Click Save to Disk
Click Save File, this will save the resized picture to your Downloads file
You will find the picture renamed as rsz_original name

We have this large bell with no markings I can find on it. Need some help please. I am guessing it is a school bell but having trouble identifying and learning more about it (type/mfr). I do not have a history on it other than it came from a property on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
Height of the bell is 16″ to top of stem, 15″ bell height
Diameter of the bottom of the skirt is 23″
Writing or engraving on the bell – none that I can find
Material from which the bell was made – cast bronze with iron yoke
This bell has a flat rectangular stem/crown/stub measures 3 15/16″ wide x 1 3/16″ thick x 5″ tall
It is very heavy so I can not lift it to get a better image inside right now.
Thank you very much in advance for any information and/or assistance you can provide.
