Keeping Time on Cape Ann
Saturday, March 9
3:00 p.m. Lectures, Readings, Films
Bob Frishman, owner of Bell-Time Clocks in Andover, will lead an illustrated talk on clock making, timekeeping and clocks as art.
Frishman has studied, restored, collected and sold antique timepieces since 1980 and regularly lectures on their cultural, historical and technological significance. Among the many things he will discuss is the discovery, in Gloucester, of a lost 18th-century clock signed by John Harrison--subject of the 1995 book, Longitude.
Bring your historic clock for a verbal appraisal following the presentation. This program is free for members or with Museum admission.
