Canadian Clock Museum

 Although I have only been collecting clocks for a year my modest collection is growing. We had an opportunity to visit the Canadian Clock Museum this summer and I must say that despite the fact that it is tucked away in the middle of nowhere in Deep River Ontario it is well worth the visit.

It has the best collection of Arthur Pequegnat and Snider clocks in the country or the world for that matter. It gave me a chance to look at the various models from Canadian manufacturers and appreciate the workmanship and heritage of those companies none of which are operating this day.

The first photo is of the exterior of the museum. It is actually a converted church though you would never really know it unless you asked. The last shows the hours of operation. The clock shown on the sign is an Arthur Pequegnat Moncton, though at first glance it resembles the #1 Regulator.

The third shows clocks from the Canada Clock Company which produced wall and mantel clocks of which Forestville was a popular brand.

The third photo shows an assortment of Arthur Pequegnat clocks many of which were named after Canadian towns and cities.
