Here I am with the clock last Christmas
Hi Janice…..I also have my grandmothers family clock, same size as yours and same problem for husband, has to be turned off each evening so he can sleep….me I was brought up with it chimes in the night……it also strikes every 1/4 hour……and sometimes i don’t hear it at all……..but yes it brings back lots of memory. I am the custodian of the family clock and it is nearly 92 years of age, and I have all the documents of purchase from MYERS……many many years ago…just remember they still have to be serviced every 10 years and a drop of oil for the workings…….my service chap comes from Lilydale and he is great……not so his account, but I look at it…..it is only every 10 years……….and its the family grandfather clock…….cheers noelene
Thanks for your comment Noelene. The strikes every 1/4 hour were part of the sounds of the household when I was a kid and I still find the tick toch very comforting.
