Our theme for September was ‘time’ with various items on display. Corrie, who is unable to attend our meeting because of a prior commitment sent along four of her clocks which produced must interest. They were shaped as an aeroplane, a cow, a kiwi and a grandfather clock.
Many watches were on display, some of which were very old, having belonged to grandparents.
We saw a wonderful display of clocks, which included two carriage clocks, one with its case. An Ansonia mantle clock, crystal clocks, a talking clock, a clock with a clear dome inside which Swiss figures danced, a Royal Albert clock, a sewing machine clock an elephant clock and an alarm clock, were just some of the clocks we saw and discussed.
Our theme for October is ‘Education/school days’ so hopefully you will have memorabilia from those days. Exercise books, text books, badges, uniforms, reports, and more !!!
