Hi Simon

Thanks For the additional information< I can see now that the SECC PO 16 image from your earlier post has had the pendulumn bob changed to a non standard shape

Glad you like the new platform its a lot better than the old Yahoo one

Hi Jim, 

I was going to show a photo of another clock, but just had an inspiration. 

On my site is a copy of the first GPO clock manual as it were from October 1927, which has a description of the clock 16 and two drawings. GPO drawings tended to be exact down to the bow in the wires and the position of the screws!.
Here they are…


here is a link to the 1927 document. It is in the form of a .jpg gallery.

There is also the early Martin Fisher Magneta system detailed here.
