Photograph was edited for publication purposes Photograph article dated January 16, 1950 partially reads, "Down through the ages bells have played an important party in the life of man and beast. Huge bells ring out joyously for the living, toll solemnly for the dead, sound warnings for fire or disaster or call the pious to worship. Tiny bells have their uses too, calling flocks together, announcing the wares of peddlers, proclaiming a visitor at the door, chiming out a hundred different meanings. Mrs. Fred C. Eggers, 13351 Harding Ave., San Fernando, became interested in bells and their histories while traveling when her husband was in the Army. Very large bells were out of the question because of the lack of space to pack them, so she confined her collection to small ones. Today she has more than fifty bells in her collection representing nearly every country in the world."
