TIMEKEEPING IN EARLY NEW ENGLAND

by Tara Hathaway
March 8, 2017

AN ILLUSTRATED LECTURE BY BOB FRISHMAN.

With more than 100 digital images, Bob portrays the history of clocks and watches in New England, beginning with the arrival of the Mayflower up to the 1883 adoption of Standard Time. From Eli Terry’s wooden movements to Henry David Thoreau’s banjo clock, the story traces the changes from agrarian sun-time to ubiquitous ticking timepieces governing our lives.

You are welcome to bring your timepieces for an informal evaluation

He is a Fellow of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors, Chairman of the NAWCC Time Symposium Committee, and a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers (London, UK).
