PICTURES: Bevin Bell Factory

The 180-year-old factory was destroyed by fire on May 29, 2012. Since then, Bevin and his employees have been working out of temporary quarters in a former bottle factory at 17 Watrous Street, not far from where the factory stood. Bevin Bells also made the first bell used on a bicycle and a car; plus, they made bells for the Good Humor ice cream trucks, the bell aboard the USS Maine, the bell used in Joe Louis' championship fight, the New York Stock Exchange bell and the bell Frank Capra's "It's a Wonderful Life."
