The first Spanish Explorers went north in Ca. to plan the missions. They dropped mustard seeds so in the Spring they could easily find there way back. Each mission was about 1 day by horse. This bell commemorates the opening of cars and trucks on the El Camino Real, Still many signs of this. This 1914 bell looks same as big one. 9 inches tall, I will research more when I get time. Really nice patina on the bronze and nice ring! It was at thrift store. When US Marines raised Bear Flag of Ca. in Town of Sonoma, (here where I live), They put Gen. Vallejo in Jail, but let him out when he agreed to open his vast wine cellar! You can tour his beautiful home today! Now soon Ca. will have more Hispanics then Whites. We think we stole it fair and square, but now we share it with people from all parts of the world. That is a good thing! Don
