This is a special favourite. A gift from a friend. It is a very old heavy bell typical of those used by the the more flamboyant Town Crier. Standing 15 inches tall with a diameter of 7 inches it has an unusual wooden handle.
During early life I was known as Fido - so I use that as my internet identity where I can. I am a retired Local Government man who now enjoys a variety of interests. In these blogs I hope to share some of them with anyone with a shared sense of humour who may come across them. But they are mainly for my own interest as a reminder of some of the things I have done in my retirement.
This is one of them.
