Whitechapel Bell Foundry (1)

The attached account in Spitalfields Life gives the terrible facts of the sale of the Whitechapel Bell Foundry which is now owned by a Boston venture capitalist who wants to turn it into a boutique hotel. Thus has a unique surviving example of one of London’s preindustrial workshops, preserving manufacture in the inner city, been stripped out and sold off. The only hope is provided by Factum Arte’s intelligent and well-considered proposal to use it for latterday bronze casting.
