    Great image from the archives of the Canadian Railway Museum of the station clock at the Windsor, Ontario train station.

    Thanks for another great image, Noel.

    Have you ever run across anything that talked about who/how these clocks that were hung so high were wound? I've seen pictures from rr stations, stores, barber shops, etc. that were hung out of reach. The reasoning is certainly understandable, but I always wonder if a ladder or step stool was kept handy and whose responsibility it was. Some have wires which would indicate they were self winding/synchronized, but not all.

    OSHA would love the height of these old clocks :eek:
    I wonder if they ever had to open the window?

    Hi Pat...I haven't forgotten about your question! This image from the Library of Congress showing the Railroad Depot in Grand Island, Nebraska might be of interest! :emoji_slight_smile:
