I've previously posted a couple of threads about the ongoing restoration of this Seth Thomas street clock. Here is a short article about the finished clock that we installed on September 29th, 2016, along with a TV spot.

That looks like a great job you've done and a real asset to the street scene there. I'm sure the locals must be very pleased with it.

The clock is located at a very busy bus stop at a city park, right next to the city hall, so the area is swarming with pedestrians of every stripe, most of whom were very enthusiastic to see the clock returning to Northampton after a many-year absence. Many passersby took photos.

Some really nice work Mr. Nunes. Also, some decent press doesn't hurt either!

Really nice restoration Peter. Did you gold leaf or use a gold paint, if so what brand?
