    Since I just read the “Research Activities & News” article in the September/October 2019 Watch & Clock Bulletin on page 401, I could not resist taking a picture of this iconic bank building with its “Two-Sided” clock standing on the sidewalk in downtown Owensboro, KY. This happens to be only a couple of blocks from where KY Floral #44 has their periodic meetings.
    But back to this story on Seth Thomas Four-Dial Street clocks, I would have liked to seen in print where the ones that are known to exist are located? I think this would be helpful to NAWCC members for when they travel that these historic clocks could be placed on their itineraries!
    Thanks, Brad Maisto, KY Floral #44 Secretary

    Hello Brad,
    I have been gathering information for well over a year on all the Seth Thomas Four-Dial Street Clocks. The original idea was launched by Chuck Roeser and since then we have been researching all 71 of the clocks in the record books. Currently, there are 41 clocks located. A book is currently in the works with the intent to publish sometime early next year. A map will be included showing all locations of the clocks unless the ones in private collections wish to remain anonymous.
    Regards, Eric Ryback, Saint Louis, MO #176675
