I found this grandfather clock and I was fascinated by its workings. Since this is about history, I'd like to know who made it so I can research the rest. I will upload four pictures of it.

  • I tried doing an IMG src, but I didn't see any graphics, nor did my screen reader, for I am blind, announce that there were any graphics, so I added some normal external links to my web server where I've uploaded them. – HeavenlyHarmony Jan 28 '18 at 17:21

    I've moved the pictures into the question body. Hope that's OK. – sempaiscuba Jan 28 '18 at 17:36
  • How did you add the pictures? When I pressed control G it brought up a little box where I could upload the picture or use an external link. However, the images were greater than 2 MB, so I wasn't able to upload them. When I saw the edit, I saw the exclamation point, followed by two square bracket sets. In the first one, there was a description, and in the second block, there was a number from 1 to 4. – HeavenlyHarmony Jan 28 '18 at 17:51
  • I just downloaded the pics and reduced the image sizes to under the 2MB limit before loading them into the question. :) – sempaiscuba Jan 28 '18 at 17:56

    There are command line tools which may be easier for visually impaired folk to use. E.g. Imagemagick and some of the NetPBM suite of tools. – RedGrittyBrick Jan 29 '18 at 15:16

The dial is marked Howard Miller, who are still around and have their own web site.

Your clock looks very similar to the 611-252 Celine in their current catalogue, so might be an earlier model:
