Antique clock expert Bob Frishman returns to the Gibson House for another entertaining, nontechnical, and lushly illustrated talk! Bob will discuss the history of timekeeping in New England, from the time of the Mayflower to the 1883 adoption of standard time. He will also share dozens of images, including several iconic fine art examples from his "Horology in Art” project that culminated in a 2017 symposium he organized for Boston's Museum of Fine Arts (http://www.horologyinart.com/
). Bob will also speak briefly about the important timepieces in the Gibson House, including the Aaron Willard tall clock he has serviced gratis over the years.
Following his lecture, Bob will offer informal appraisals of the audience's mechanical clocks and watches.
