Gong Show

Some time ago on this blog, we were wondering about an unusual object near the altar in old photos of Peru St. Alphonsus and Bascom St. Patrick. (See pictures HERE.)

Thanks to the online Benzinger Brothers catalog, we now know it is a gong, used similarly to the bells at consecration/elevation.

I bet that sounded horrible.
