Artefacts At Work - "It Just Keeps On Ticking"

Click on each picture for a closer look!
In the picture at the left of the 1873 Union Station, we see its prominent clock tower. The clock in that tower was removed in 1927 after the present Union Station opened. What is truly amazing is the fact that the clock, re-installed in the Huntsville, Ontario City Hall as seen in the picture at right continues to serve up time today, 135 years later. To paraphrase the old Timex ads, it just keeps on ticking!
