The Anonymous Widower

Some More Self Winding Clocks

I first found two of these at Tooting Bec some years ago.

Golders Green station has a pair, which appear to be in good condition.

I wonder how many are still installed and in full working order. According to this section in the Wikipedia article on the Self Winding Clock Company, there were originally 600 and installation started in the 1900s.

Long may they continue to give passengers the time!

  1. I wish they’d install one of these on the new concourse at Kings Cross!
