I agree....that pic is bloody awesome. At a glance it almost appears black and white...only two other shades, the sky and the sparse vegetation.

One story......... does not sound right though.

"Apparently there was a film made here and the bell was put up to get all the people together from time to time."

Story I heard was it was erected for Campbells land-speed record attempt... used for clearing the track before runs...

Also, to be rung in celebration when the record was hopefully achieved...

I tried Google, but battling to find anything...
They call me Judy or Judes...

Ja, Google is surprisingly vague about the bell.

Those explanations sound a bit primitive.

also heard it was set up for a film crew.

I have done two commercials/film shots there, this was about 6/7 years ago, the bell was already there if I remember correctly.
