  What a beautiful town clock Warwick has and how fortunate they are to have someone like George Day to wind and maintain it. These old gems are hidden away in many a dingy dark tower here in New England. Loyd Taylor maintained the one in the North Orange church for over 30 years before taking early retirement from the job at a young 90 years of age and turning the job over to me recently. I am honored to do the job, one that only a handful of people have held ( including my dad who also wound it for over 30 years). Our clock was installed in 1876 and is a Stevens and Co clock also made in Boston and in its 140 or so years of nearly continuous running has most likely only had 3 or 4 other caretakers. These clocks are antique beautiful gems that very few people ever see or think about, sturdy uncomplaining machines that have been ticking away reliably nonstop for years. Thank you for sharing this with us.  Warren Rice
