Catagory Proposal: Bells

10 posts in this topic

This would be under "thing" catagory.

 

Not sure if this would all fit into one catagory, or if it would need to be in sub catagories, depending on church, or school. Also, maybe everyone could help me, are there any other types of public bells out there?

 

Description:

Church bells and schools bells that are housed publically on top of the church or school, where they can be seen or heard. Not new pa systems, but traditional metal bells that need to be rang with a clapper. This used to be fairly common, but not as much anymore, at least in the US.

I believe they're very rare, but there are other types of bells, like old bell towers in early American cities used to communicate warnings (war, weather, etc.) or celebrations. I don't know how many of these still exist today. Think the congressional bells in the Old Post Office Pavilion in DC, for example. I think this is a great idea. I'd love to see some of these sites.

I like it. But perhaps it should be all outdoor traditional metal bells with clappers. I know of 2 in my area.

It depends on what kind. I wouldn't want a bell that's on someone's porch, for instance.

You could put a size restriction on your bells. Maybe a diameter of 2 feet or more?

Possibly, though I would hate to limit any public bells that happen to be smaller than that?

Well, you have to be a little picky so you get what you want. Just making a general suggestion for clarifying the types of bells you are looking for (that aren't too common).
