Inspired by the ancient Morrill clock from nearby Amesbury(see other thread), here’s the relatively modern Newburyport Firehouse clock soon to be put on display in the lobby of the Firehouse Center for the Arts in Newburyport Massachusetts. E Howard, 1896. Cleaned up by local clock expert Ed Siegmann. Given to the city by John T. Brown - he was also responsible for at least 5 other tower clocks in the area (all still operating), many of which he paid for personally from 1895-1898. It was replaced by an electric in the 1980s.
