Timeless, elegant post clocks

AN AMERICAN TRADITION

American “street” or “post” clocks were an early form of advertisement adapted from popular public clocks of Victorian England. They first appeared in the eastern United States about 1870. Then and now, street clocks stand out against buildings and signage, and are frequently placed in front of city halls, train stations, banks, jewelry stores, and other public locations.

Today, the  street clock stands as an American tradition. It’s a symbol of our pride in workmanship, our stability, and our sense of community. The street clock is both a dignified reminder of our past and a legacy for the future.

“THE NOSTALGIA OF A PUBLIC CLOCK IS GOOD FOR THE COMMUNITY. A CLOCK IS VERY MUCH LIKE A BUILDING. THERE’S A CONSTANCY TO IT. BUSINESSES COME AND GO AND THINGS CHANGE, BUT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT ANCHORS THE NEIGHBORHOOD.”
