I’m not sure of its age but its a clock of similar construction to one in Savannah Georgia, and in my town of Mechanicsburg, PA. They all have the green stained glass and similar fonts. Probably same nationwide company.
Good thinking, Kristi. I don’t think I’ve seen many up here in Vermont, but I’ll keep my eye out for more.
No guess, but it reminds me a little of this clock in Madison, IN, because of the way the words are set in what looks to be glass. This must have been a style of a certain period.
Whoops, looks like my link didn’t carry. Here it is again. http://www.flickr.com/photos/mobilene/2483428481
Nice! And yes, very familiar.
1938. I cheated.
What was your source? The date of the building?
I already knew the National Register nomination for the Downtown Springfield Historic District was online, so I couldn’t resist. It lists the date of the clock.
Good tip! I often forget that southern Vermont has a few NRs online. thanks!
Such a gorgeous sign! One of the lovely little perks to living in Springfield!! Have you ever seen the old Bank Vault on the building by this sign?
I have not – I’ll stop next time to see it.
