The Bell at St Mark's

This bell is outside St. Mark's Church in-the-Bowery, which I've drawn before. The history says it dates to 1836 (though 1838 is inscribed on it). The church suffered a massive fire in 1978 which nearly destroyed it. The heat of the fire caused the bell to crack. It was salvaged and is now on display on a rather haphazard arrangement of bricks, cinder blocks, and lumber near the northeast corner of the church.
