Phs vintage bells

Today was a great day. After recording a Autocall Chime going off to seeing these! Schwarze Electric Company Dual Bell and The Reeve Electric Company Type APV-8 Bell.


With those bells being so different from the original Autocall bells this school had, I wonder if they were used as telephone bells, mechanical bells, or something else.

Yes, these bells were used for telephone (Bell System) bells. most likely not in service anymore. The Reeve bell is in ruff shape but the Schwarze bell just needs a little dusting and it look brand new.
