    Hey,
    I thought I would share my last courthouse visit photos. I think it's a pretty unique set up myself, never seen a Howard#00 used in this way.
    This courthouse is very large not sure of the span in between the clock faces but probably at least 75ft or so.....the uniqueness is that instead of having one movement running 2 dials, each dial has it's own movement, very similar to a modern day synchronous motor tower clock installation. So they don't just have one clock they have two!

    I also got very excited since my E. Howard 00 is set up very similar to this. I have told other clock enthusiast that I have a E. Howard #00 that came out of a cupola installation and they say "no......it probably came out of a street clock and they sold it to you with motion works and said it came out of a cupola". Well it has a center gear mounted on top....... and it all bolts up perfectly and about a 6 ft span.

    Anyhow, this helps me confirm that Howard did use these movements in traditional tower clock installations.
    Enjoy, and let me know if you have seen this type of situation before.
    Thanks
    Dan

    I have one similar, but with electric motor. Have seen several of this size frequently driven through a bevel gear setup.
