Long Description:

Voici ce qu'il y a d'écrit sur cette plaque :

LA GROSSE CLOCHE
PORTA SANCTI JACOBI
 
J'appele aux armes
J'annonce les jours
Je donne les heures
Je chasse l'orage
Je sonne les fêtes
Je crie à l'incendie
Traduction d'une inscription latine relevée sur la cloche coulée
en 1775 par Trumeau père et fils, fondeurs à Bordeaux ; elle remplace
une cloche plus ancienne qui se fèle en sonnant le tocsin lors de
l'incendie de 1774
 
This bell was erected in 1775, and like those preceding it, was bearer
of all good and bad tidings to the people of Bordeaux.
