I've been contacted by a writer who is looking for detailed info about the The Duquesne Brewery clock (or the Pittsburgh soda clock, or the Stroh's Clock, or the Equitable Gas Clock, or any of a number of names this clock has been called over the years).
It was supposedly the largest single face clock in the world when it was installed in Pittsburgh in 1933, with a 60-foot-by-60-foot clock face, 35 foot minute hand and a 25 foot hour hand of laminated aluminum.
Built in Georgia by Audichron for $12,500, it was apparently mounted on a huge billboard for a period of time before being attached to the Duquesne Brewery Building. Most likely became the Duquesne Brewery clock in May, 1961.
It got waterlogged and froze in 1983 or thereabouts, and was repaired.
Equitable Gas is letting its lease run out on the clock, leaving the clock face available for other companies to advertise.
I told the writer that if anyone in the world made this particular clock their personal topic of research, they could most likely be contacted here.
If anyone has more info on the clock in question, I'd be most appreciative to pass it along to Mr. Brandolphe (the writer guy).
