I suppose that in those days (circa 1928) people took their clocks with them (summer in the country and such) when they traveled assuming that they were portable enough. I know that windup alarm clocks have been around forever but folks then probably felt that they had to be reminded of the time and a strike clock sounding through the summer house would have fit the bill. It is only 10 inches high and 8 inches wide and can easily be put in a suitcase.
