1939/1940 World's Fair. Corona gate with Bulova clock
Further interesting Bulova pictures found here:
Of course I recognize her admin. It's Mary McFarland...and the lady on her right in the green dress is her sister Michelle. :)
It's those flags and that turnstile with the strange round sign above it that I don't recognize.
Here is the link to the original post that found this clock....sorry I had to revisit my all time favourate thread.
When I go to your first link to all the library of congress photos, the tiff's although difficult to view w/o add-in to browser, are pretty neat when one sees a bigger picture. They are also hard to just "download" for viewing outside of browser. However, the actual negatives, in 5" by 7" format, would have fantastic resolution. Large format camera was used. I'm talking about granularity resolution of film here. I am requesting a copy of the actual negatives for two which I find interesting. I think I see several watches in the tiffs. I've got equipment to view/print from this format film, and will let you know if I find anything remotely interesting at the watch level. Will
That would be excellent Will.
So Geoff Baker tells me I need to get this and well so I did Thanks Geoff. :) The photo on the left is from 1939 at the Long Island Railroad Station and the one on the right is the same station in 1964. Note they changed the clock to Waltham Watches in the 64 picture. So now I'm wondering do we have 3 Bulova Watch time clocks or is this the same clock used in three different places?
Worlds Fair,Train Station, Philadelphia jewelery store
Note the black center in the first photo. The other two have/had white. A re-paint maybe or another clock.
Isn't it amazing to see the passage of time can do to a clock.
Thanks for sharing Bob and revisiting this topic.
C'mon Bob - throw up a pic of the Bulova shrine in your front room too will ya? Let's get 'em all out there!
We all need to bask in the 'greenish glow'.
I plan to do that Geoff. Haven't received the photo yet and I got to get a frame for it.
Hey Bob, I was thinking late last night if the person/company that built your clock would be interested in makeing a few more. I'm sure a bunch of members would love to buy one....I know I would.
Here's a link to his website Stephen. http://www.curtisclock.com/ Curtis is a very nice man and would be happy to make more clocks. The shipping cost to Australia is gonna kill ya! :)
