07/21/11 91 W, 10 I - + 2 - 3 Bells and Towers and Clappers, Oh My!

Reporting from the road and the day after explorations in York, PA. They have a number of historic firehouses, both active and retired. Most of those have bell towers, which were also used as hose towers. Here are some photos, including documentation of climbing the two-story tower of old Rescue Company station. (The building is three stories, itself.) The bell is presently sitting outside the York County Fire Museum, which is the old Royal Company station. More later. Click to enlarge:
