Here in New England time is measured by beautiful, quaint steeple clocks on ancient churches and town halls as it has been for the past one to two hundred years. We nearly break our necks trying to see them all as we drive through the towns. By the way, nearly every town has a sign at the border giving the date it was established - all in either the 1600's or 1700's. CLOCK REPAIRER IS FASCINATING One of our new friends (are you listening, Jon Burmeister?) is Bruce Cheney of Paxton, MA, who is a third generation clock maker and is passing on his knowledge to his sons, Brian, 9 1/2 and Brett, 7 1/2. Both his grandfather and father were experts in clock repair- ing. Bruce and his brother are following in those footsteps even though they lean to lonely, dusty cubicles high above the sidewalks. Of course some of the old clocks have been electrified, but Bruce says the trend is now to preserve the old workings. One of the oldest steeple clocks he services is in Orford, NH, three hours away. Iron in the works was made in Saugus about 1725. Steeples and cupolas which house the old timepieces are works of art, as are the clocks themselves. Bruce travels miles to work on the clocks and do the weekly winding, which requires a certain delicate touch, but he loves his work in this special field. INHERITED WHALE OIL In his home, he repairs grandfather clocks and other types. You never know how many chimes you will be hearing as they strike the quarter and half hours. One of his treasures is a bottle of whale oil inherited from his grandfather. He uses it very sparingly as the need arises. Helen, his wife, has made a fascinating scrap book of pic- tures and publicity. Her training at the Worcester Art Museum school stands her in good stead for projects such as this. She is a fine photographer but admits sometimes it is a real chal- lenge at the heights they must go. As a free lance artist along with her photography, she en- joyed her seven years with the E.B. Luce Company where she made up photo murals for trade shows and exhibits. She did genealogical research on the company and discovered it was the oldest photo lab in the USA which still goes by the original name. They do murals for Bausch and Lomb, Baltimore Aquarium, the Smithsonian and others such as a local historical society in Worcester. Boy could we use her in the Shelby County Museum and Nishnabotna Genealogical Society!
