I get it honest

I stumbled across this photo of my late great-grandmother opening up her horse clock present in the fifties.



Sweeeeeeeet.

Wow! What a great picture to have! I have a few pieces of my great-grandmother's embroidery and a stack of 50's magazines - I love seeing her name on the mailing label. I love that clock!!!

My grandparents had a clock that reminds me of this one. The clock was set into the side of a little carriage, there were little horses out in front of it, and the little coachman's arm always moved as if he were cracking the whip. I was so fascinated by it as a kid.
By the way, if you grew up in Nashville, do you have any memories of "Little Salvage" (on 2nd Ave S, 3rd Ave S?). I have so many memories of going in there w my mom--they had a large selection of grandfather clocks, and what I liked best were those light fixtures where oil runs down threads or wires and looks like rain.
