Whitechapel Bell Foundry

Here’s a peek into the Whitechapel Bell Foundry – the most famous in the world – added to the Flickr pool by maggie jones.

The main foundry.

Big Ben and the Liberty Bell come from here. It’s also Britain’s oldest manufacturing company and stood in the same spot when Jack the Ripper roamed around Whitechapel’s streets. All of his murders were carried out not more than 10 minutes from this old spot.

Thanks Maggie!
