West of State & Liberty Streets


Built by the Brown Street Clock Company, this timepiece has kept for Salemites since the early 1900's. Street clocks were a primary source of advertisement for jewelers at the turn of the century and Brown had the corner of the market for designing and distrubuting these cast iron pieces. This in one of the 21 known functioning Brown clocks left in the US.

This is so much nicer and pleasant to look at than those huge flashing digital clock signs that seem to be all about.
