    This image was taken in April of 1943 and shows the women who were working as "wipers" at the Roundhouse of the Chicago and North Western Railway Company in Clinton, Iowa eating their lunch in their break room. Not the clock I'd respect to see in a Roundhouse...:)

    As I recall quite a few of the roundhouses were actually octagonal.;)

    Then the clock should be mounted to the ceiling.

    If I can find my picture of Major Paul Chamberlain's ceiling clock I will post it. It covered most of the ceiling of his study.
