'Summon the Living, Bells from Victorian Community Collections' explores the use of bells as keepers of time through the items catalogued on Victorian Collections Stories page.

Curated by Kitty Owens, Exhibtion Services Manager, MA (Vic) this story was originally inspired by Graeme Davison’s book 'The Unforgiving Minute: How Australia Learned to Tell the Time.'
