can you take it home?
That's so cool that you can find stuff like that and be getting paid for it! Where did it come from?
Oooh! I love all your clock photos! Could you email me the full size versions if you have them? Would be ace as desktop bgs!
but it's not too late ... they could be restored .... surely .... couldn't they? ....
Alas, restoration costs lots. It shouldn't deteriorate any more though, and I've hidden it somewhere safe (heheh). It probably came from a brewery building. It is, technically, in a museum, even if it is only in the store room.
ps photos sent J.
The top one is now my desktop bg, although I rotated it as on closer inspection the clock is upside down in both of these and they work better for me as desktops the other way around!
wow it's like a big ol' train station clock, how big is it?
Yes, it's upside down because it's supposed to be suspended (like a big ol' train station clock) and so it was resting on the brackets. I did try rotating it but preferred how it looked when it was sitting on the floor!
Old clocks always look so good
