Employees of Skuller's Jewelry, 115  West Main Street, prepared to move the huge frame of the street clock  that had fallen to the sidewalk Monday January 28, 1974 after strong winds knocked it off it's pole, injuring Carolyn Green of Falmouth. The clock dates back to 1913, when Skuller's jewelry store had the clock built to advertise their company. The cast-iron  clock, which is about 14 feet tall, was taken down in 2010 and stored until funds were raised for the complete restoration by the Verdin Company of Cincinnati. The clock was rededicated in September or 2013.  Photo  by Ron Garrison | Staff
