I found this old photo in my grandmother’s collection, and I believe it dates back to the 1940s or early 1950s. I can remember how exotic the floral clock seemed to be when I was a child. Years later as schoolboys we sneaked into the zoo over a wall where the bisons used to be, and the clock was still pretty well kept in those days. I was saddened to see how forlorn it looked when I took my wife there a few times in the 1990s.

A bit more searching revealed that the photo was taken by my mother or father on Easter Monday, April 7, 1947.
