    Hi everyone, I picked up a Seth Thomas #4 street clock movement. I plan to restore this clock and put it on display in my home. I will post both the restoration and the finished clock.

    Hi Jeff,
    Thanks for sharing your little #4. Great little clock!

    What do you (or anyone else reading) know about these types of pedestal used by Seth Thomas? Were these accessories sold for using street clock movements in smaller tower installations? I've seen a few different styles, as well.

    I was told they were used for installation of the clock inside buildings. They were cast iron and heavy so that they would not tip over when winding the weight. Some had holes in the bottom for bolting the unit to the floor.
