A photograph of a situation that was found this way. This kind of alarm bells still have real hammers in them, and you imagine how the chicks will be alerted to mush, if the alarm ever goes off. At the same time, it is perhaps the most optimistic of the pictures from that time: as if the alarm bell had become unnecessary and had not been used for so long that animals had nested.
In fact, it was again different than expected, neither cruel nor sentimental. Later that same day, the bell still went off. When I asked about it, they said "oh yes, it goes off all the time". The birds didn't mind the terror. They made themselves at home in it.
