Farmer's Bell

By netta1234
This Bell is at my Sister in Law's ,It's on top of one of the old building next to the Farm House.It was there to call the Farmer and workers when it was dinner time or if they were wanted for anything.Much cheaper than Mobile phones these days.

But can you send a text message? Nice rusty Colours Netta.

Nice texture of an old bell which would send out a welcome call.
Well done. WesternRed.

A beautiful Grot Shot, well done. I hope it was rung for the 3 minutes at the start of London 2012. if not it may be that which as caused our
bad start. Eric.

Think I need one of those Netta.
I recently took out a contract on a Vodaphone 'Smart Phone'.
Big mistake! Signal isn't good here! Touch phone -very bad idea for anybody
over the age of five! Can't text without making a mistake!
If you don't End Call - big bill awaits! Vodaphone won't stop contract!
So be warned think very hard before changing your provider!
So think I'll get a Bell just like this!

It doesn't look as though it's been rung for a while. Wonderful history and worth preserving.
