What strikes me is how "bundled up" everyone is! Coats, long sleeves, "babushkas"!

Since the two sides have different times it's correct four times a day.

I could study this photo for hours.

Really? I thought it was later. I'll have to ask Sam.

Main Street looks almost identical to today!

It stopped working in the mid-seventies.

Haha, both sides have different times? That is funny. We should make sure it actually doesn't work. At least that way, it is correct twice a day.

Actually the time changes on the clock every once in awhile, and both sides have different times.

When I was growing up (60s-70s) it was always working.

Love the parade photo.

Was that old clock working back then? Or has it been frozen at 11:25 since? We should call it Metuchen's "Back to the Future Clock."
