    It went for $3,550.00. It looks like a howard street clock movement to me also.

    I have one just like it as well. It is definitely a E. Howard #00. Most likely used in a street clock, but I have one that came out of a cupola of a stable. It has two sets of motion works and the linkage to them is 2ft each, so it had a complete width to the two dials of 4 feet. Mine had fallen from it location and the pendulum was damaged, so I had to remake the pendulum leader.

    This is one of my favorite tower clock movements in my collection, because it is simple and non-clock enthusiast can easily see how it works.

    Here you go, sorry for the delay in posting pics.

    My clock came out of a cupola installation. It ran two 3 ft. dials. I do have the two sets of motion works with all the linkage. The original hand were wood and of course rotted to nothing. The clock keeps great time! Sorry for the crazy date the pics were taken on 4/13/09. When I got the clock it had fallen from it's original installation and the second gear had a flat spot. I had to straighten out the gear and since then it has worked perfectly. I had talked to several other tower clock experts and they said I would have to cut a new gear. It is amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it! Also I had to replace the pendulum leader, the original had been discarded. Luckily the pendulum bob and part of the pendulum stick were still there.
    Great little clock, and I like it because it can be displayed in a very small area. This is up in the corner of my "clock room" in our house. All the rest of the tower clocks are out in the shop.

    Very nice clock Dan ! What year is that from 1800's? A-frame design too,I love how they put pin stripping on the tower clocks back then. Please show other picture's of your tower clocks. Once I got this one-I wanted another one ,they are so cool. Most I seen from ebay was far east coast or very west coast -only if they was closer to my house!!!!I would have another one and would have to sleep on the couch!!
