Today we take knowing the time and the day of the year for granted but for our ancestors it was far more difficult.

When did clocks start to have an affect on our lives? How does a pendulum clock actually work? What is the largest clock in the world today? When did toothed wheels make their first appearance? Do you own a clock which is a true antique?

Join Rob Shipton and the City of Canada Bay Heritage Society for an in-depth exploration of the history of clocks! The talk will be followed by light refreshments and a chance to chat with the speaker.

When: Saturday 7 October 2017, 1:30pm.
Where: City of Canada Bay Museum, 1 Bent Street, Concord
Cost: Free – donations welcome.
Contact: 02 9744 8528 or heritage@canadabayheritage.asn.au
