Unusual architecture
06-MAR-2013

Unusual architecture

Swan Bell Tower, Perth.

The 12 bells come from one of London's most famous churches, St. Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalger Square.
They were given to the people of Western Australia and the City of Perth to commemorate Australia's bicentenary in 1988.

The bells are famous in the nursery rhyme 'Oranges and Lemons'
"You owe me five farthings, say the bells of St. Martins".
