Great Historical Clock Of America

Postby koimaster » June 26th 2017, 8:32am

While not exactly the latest technology or high-tech materials used in watches today, much less something to be worn on the wrist, this remarkable old clock gets another moment in the spotlight and deserves a look from anyone interested in history, horology... and patriotic American lore. Known as The Great Historical Clock Of America, this 13-foot-tall (about 4 meters), highly complicated, and highly animated clock will be on display at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in Washington D.C. starting June 28, 2017, after decades in storage. It represents a peek at some little-known history and a snapshot of clockmaking around the late 19th century.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Cool. And it comes with a black and white cookie and a statue of Bernie Sanders.

Finding out the time is about as difficult as finding a cheesburger.
