The First Parish UUC Carillon

Tucked away in the corner of the choir loft of First Parish UUC in Ashby, MA is this machine. The clock would control a record changer and play Carillon recordings from speakers located in the bell tower. When I ventured to the tower I saw no evident of speakers so I can only assume that they were located above the bell (see photo of tower).

I can imagine how many decades have past since this thing was powered on.
