Photographs and information on the bell of the Dutch Reformed Church, Three Anchor Bay, Cape Town. There is a bell that hangs in the tower of the church. In 1881, on ringing the bell for a religious service, it fell through a number of ceilings but remained essentially undamaged. Rather than hanging the bell back in the tower, a horseshoe construction was erected. The bell has an unusual shape in that it is elongated. The bell was made by Robert Henderson from Glasgow in 1857. The decorations on the bell are as follows: In a half circle ROBERT HENDERSON 8-pointed star with inscription O? GLASGOW 1857. Finally, there are two moulding wires on the sound bow.
