I would like to take this time to thank all that were involved with the McLintock Lowell High School clock. They are as follows: Mickey Fearon and his cousin Donald; Stan at Merrimack Furniture; Dave Zaltzberg & Robert Nelson for saving and restoring the stained glass panels and dials; Rick & Ken Gariepy of Mammoth Rd. Glass; Walter at Electric Time who helped me design the system; and "Wiring Wizard Master"Dave Donovan. I would also like to thank (Head Master) of Lowell High School, Brian Martin, for hiring me for the restoration and his assistance with the funding for its completion. And last, but not least, his
secretary, Sue Francisco, who answered all of my calls and questions. It was a 50/50 chance that this clock could be restored. The right blend of artist and tradesman made it all possible. Thank you again, in assisting me to its completion.
The clocks glass, stained glass panels, stained glass dials and hands have been removed for restoration. The copper case will need some restoration to the top where there has been damage from fallen ice. This was a 7 month restoration which took many hrs. of unlimited time. All the electrics will have to be replaced as will the power source also.
I am currently in the process of restoring the Lowell High School Clock on Kirk St. in Lowell Ma. I will have photographs to keep you updated. Just think of the automobiles that were parked on the street in front of the school. Kids looking at the time so they would not be late for class.... Fur coats, straw hats, white shoes.
And remember this... My success, as a married man is because of a beautiful and loving wife and a wonderful family and great friends....
