I went to the historical society in my hometown today. I had donated some of the clocks from the elementary school in the area and I finally had the chance to get them working for them. They were delighted when everything was working in this old school building.
They have a LOT of information on the surrounding area, including history on families and towns and all sorts of things. I have a copy of the yearbook containing my grandmother as a sophomore in high school. I recognized her right away.
Since the master clock that runs the old clocks is an electronic unit it doesn’t have an easy way to advance the clocks if the power goes out or at the seasonal time changes. I built them an auxiliary control box with buttons and switches to make this easy. It works great.
I told them if they have an issues we can easily solve the issue over FaceTime.
