History

1925 A carillon of 23 bells was cast by Gillett and Johnston for J. & E. Atkinson's Store, 24 Old Bond Street. It was later taken over by J. Fox & Co. although the building still remains known as the Atkinson's Building on account of the name "Atkinson's" written in the brickwork. Castings took place between 1925-7.
1932 The 9th bell (C) was recast by Gillett & Johnston.
