Before and after shots of a strange clock I pulled out of a box of rubish. It is model #270 manufactured by the Gilbratar Electric Clock Co. (Sessions).
The clock had it's electric motor still intact, but it was shot. It looked like the clock had been partially submerged in water at one time.

At it's tallest point (the upper windmill blades it is 13 inches tall and 11 inches wide. Probably dates from the late 30's to the early 40's. It sits overlooking my home office area on a tall bookcase. One man's junk...
