“As daylight time comes to an end this weekend, one Toronto man will be up bright and early to make sure one of Canada's historic landmarks isn't out of step with the times. The clock tower at Toronto's Old City Hall began operating in 1900, and thanks to John Scott's careful and continuous tinkering, it rarely drifts more than a few seconds out of time.”

Artwork in old machinery. A time when appearance meant something.
The craftsmanship in the gearing and wheels reminds me of the machinery in the Tower Bridge that raises and lowers the drawbridge there. Truly art. Thanks for sharing.
