Yet ANOTHER for the nostalgia page.. a clock, that has been around forever and still works to this day and is perched atop my Boss' storage barn.

I bet Sandro knows exactly where this clock is too as he has probably driven past it thousands of times!

Pretty snazzy! The neon-tube border is a great touch. smile

That's cool.

We did a renovation on a school built in the early 50's. One classroom still had the original GE school clock on the wall,(bakelite base with glass bezel) hung on the clock outlet, in working condition. The others have been replaced with more modern plug in's or cheap battery operated ones.
The school facilities director said I could have it if I bought a new battery one in place of it, so I did. Now it's hanging in my shop.

I seem to recall, from growing up in the 1960s, that a lot of service stations had lighted clocks like the one you posted, sometimes on the roof.
