Sign seen inside Mission Soledad, one of the 21 missions in California.
I have a series on the mission churches of California. If you have time, check this out.
I am linking to Lesley’s SIGNS, SIGNS.

Looks pretty nice for a 212 yr old bell!
I’m wondering about that little hook that is above it though…!

Made by a well-known bell maker it’s sound must be delightful.

Nice piece of history.

I always like that old song “Mission Bell”!

That looks like a monks robe. That is pretty cool to find a place and has that displayed. ^_^

I find it fascinating that bells could have been cast with such precision and detail so long ago. Nice!

I doubt that I’ll look that good when I’m 212 years old.

That bell is a real beauty….so very, very old and in pristine condition. Love the monk’s robe beside it. Wish I was going around to all of these missions. I would be in hog heaven. Genie

Bet that bell weighs a ton… thus does not need to be secured in any way. Wouldn’t it be great to hear it’s ring? I also took a quick glance at your wonderful mission series. I’m pressed for time right now (moving house) but will come back later to enjoy more fully.

PS. Yes we sure did use that outhouse and many many more! 😉

For some strange reason that song from the 80’s? came into my head “Ring my chimes baby ring my chimes”. Uh, sorry.
Cool bell. Lots of history. I like the monk robe hanging next to it.
