Here is a link to a Ghost Town that has a lot of history to it and a neat place to photograph... This is the closest I can come to on history so far...

I live in one of those quaint little towns where they sell antiques... Dc2 .
Anyway, Hillsborough is pretty old for an American town and we have this old clock, English made, 18th century. I'm lucky enough to be one of the people who take turns winding it each week. So here's the closest thing I got to history...

This is the outside at sunset...


This is inside the tower looking up at the drive weights and pendulum, the clock is mounted on the floor directly overhead..


Space is tight up there and my widest lens was a 24mm (dx sensor) so this is the best I have of the whole mechanism...


Light was also pretty sparse and I had only a piece of foil faced poster board as a reflector. Because it was flimsy, it cast an interesting, sort of mottled light spread...


Last one, this is one of the four synchronized drives that move the hands. The faces are about six feet in diameter...
