This clock, located on the corner of Main and Hampton Streets in downtown Columbia, is just one of two identical town clocks in our state capital. The famous Sylvan Brothers had this clock installed in front of their historic jewelry store in 1906.

Many thanks to Frederick Austin of Gilbert for submitting these pictures he took in 2011.

Frederick says that he’s actually seen the clocks opened and manually wound! “It was neat to see all the gears and the old fashioned equipment inside of a clock that size” he says.

Just makes me step back in time when we shopped on Main Street. A lady from our church worked at Sylvan Brother’s.
