    John Carmichael Clock.

    It looks like very little is known about this clockmaker. I was hoping that someone might have a book or something that had more info than what I could find from Google. I guess that’s all that’s known then. Thanks. M.

    I had the pleasure this evening of setting up a John Carmichael Grandfather Clock after a move. Other than finding out that he was Scottish and from Greenock, I can’t seem to find anything else on this Clockmaker. Does anyone have info? Thank you. M.
