Very surprisingly this was a "one click" correction of fish eye in photoshop ACR lens profile!

The bell was cast at the Whitechapel Bell Foundry in London, which was founded in 1570 and is the oldest manufacturing company in Great Britain.

In 1752, more than a century before the Brisbane bell was commissioned, the foundry had produced the famous Liberty Bell, the symbol of American independence, now located in Philadelphia.

And 30 years before, in 1858, the foundry cast its biggest-ever bell, London’s famous Big Ben, which weighs 13.5 tons.

The St Stephen’s bell weighs 2.856 tonnes and arrived in Brisbane in July 1887, on board the RMS Dacca. It was donated to the church by a Mrs Kelly of Boundary St who stumped up the £250 to buy it.

The cathedral didn't live up to the expectations of the original design and doesn't even have a bell tower so whether it was ever hung and where, is anyone's guess? :)
