Here is my kitchen clock

Two days late, but I thought I could knock off two birds with one stone. Tony posted an artefact from the defunct Daimaru, and issued a challenge: find something from a now-gone department store.

Well, here is my kitchen clock.


It came from a shop that was somewhere inside the beautiful art deco Capitol building on Swanston Street. The shop was not huge, but proclaimed itself to be “Palmers Department Store.” They definitely had delusions of grandeur.

I got the clock about 12 years ago, and it’s certainly lasted longer than the store. Every couple of years it needs a new AA battery, but apart from adjusting for summer and winter time, it gives no trouble.

Feel free to post a picture of your clock… Link in the Trackbacks or comments.

oh that looks just like a clock my parents had when I was a tiny wee girl! I’ve always wanted one the same but sadly I have no kitchen clock, I rely on the computer (always running a few minutes slow), the microwave (runs quite fast and I have to take it back 10 minutes every month or so) and my mobile phone!
