    Why the bell?

    It's not a place, it's a yearning. It's not a race, it's a journey.

    Default RE: Bell and Roman Numerals

    I'm thinking that we are being too selective with the picture(s). The roman numerals seem to be spread across both pages - to read 'MCMXLVII' -- which translates to 1947 -- the year of the fire on the island.

    As for the bell, if you look closely at the lighthouse, in the background on the upper right of page 23, you will see a bell (sounding device) on the edge of the yard to the right of the lighthouse. Perhaps the fire of 1947 also burned up the lighthouse ...

    It's MXL, not MLX, so 1040. But I don't think the translation of the groups of numbers is important.

    It is possible that the grouping of the numbers itself is important. It appears to me the spacing is MC--MXL--VII.

    So, maybe 2-3-3. Also, the cherub is showing 2-1 with his fingers.

    The sign looks like it says, "Kebo."

    Keybo Street is in Bar Harbor. Also there is a Keybo Valley Golf Club which has some interesting history.

    That cherub & fireplace were the only remains of a mansion after the fire of 1947, the bell was the remains of a different mansion, same fire.

    Thanks, Sean.

    Were the mansions in the Millionaire Row? Do you know if the cherub's fingers were arranged as shown in the picture?

    The keys to the left and above the KEB() does not appear to be coincidental.
