A Photograph of the Victory Chimes was featured in the L.L. Bean Fall Housewares Catalog on page 58.

We are an official test site for the famous Maine retail company located in Freeport, Maine. L.L. Bean's Housewares division will send us some of their bowls or pitchers and similar items from a competitor. We put the items through the paces with you, our passengers. After a specified period Loraine quizzes Mary and the galley staff about the items in regards to wearability, style, function etc. and fills out a report which she submits back to L.L. Bean's Corporate Headquarters. They combine our test results with their research to determine if an item meets the rigid quality standards to become an L.L. Bean product. So next time someone mentions that something came from the L.L. Bean Catalog, tell them you just may have helped test the item! We are honored and proud to assist in product development for this legendary Maine institution.
