I have found a picture and I should have it tomorrow with a little more history.
What I have been told is that the original building had a clock. It was wound up by a key. To wind it up you had to get a tall ladder inside the foyer and climb up once every week. About 1950 a lady ? in memory of her farther bought one of the first electric clocks and had it installed. The other clock disappeared. Only 3 or 4 years later the clock was removed after a fire when the building was then altered.
