Timekeeping and Timekeepers in Early New England

November 17, 2016

Join clock expert Bob Frishman for an illustrated talk of more than 100 digital images, offering the history of clocks and watches in New England beginning with the arrival of the Mayflower up to the adoption of standard time by the railroads in the late 19th century. This talk will last no more than an hour and will be followed by an informal “road-show” appraisal session when attendees’ clocks can be identified and evaluated. So bring your clocks and join us for this great talk!

Refreshments will be served at 6:30 p.m. with the talk to begin at 7 p.m.
