TOURS OF HISTORIC PHILADELPHIA
Small-group tours of Philadelphia's historic and cultural attractions and important clocks will be organized for symposium attendees. Early signups will be important to ensure that you can participate. Please watch for announcements here and in NAWCC publications, and contact Bob Frishman to be put on a preliminary list.
The NAWCC's Silver Jubilee Convention was held in Philadelphia in June 1968. As part of the buildup to that milestone event, James Gibbs prepared a four-part series of articles -- "A Horological Tour of Philadelphia" -- that was published in the NAWCC Bulletin during 1967. Most of what he covered in much detail still can be visited and viewed, and many of the important clocks will be seen during the special tours to be arranged. Please read these in-depth articles for a preview of your horological time in Philadelphia.
