Footnotes

  • This illuminated timepiece was a focal point for town life in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire for nearly 150 years, above the shop of James Dann, watchmaker, jeweller and silversmith, at the sign of 'The Illuminated Clock'. Dann is recorded here in 1865 and the clock was only removed from its site in mid-2012. A copy of an 1888 Trade Directory entry and three photographs showing the clock in situ are sold with this lot.
