I am guessing that my clock was made in or around 1926 and originally sold for $11.00. Back then when the minimum wage was 26 cents an hour one had to work a week to buy the Brandon. It is no wonder that these clocks were found in schoolhouses and offices. Adjusted for today, that would be around $430 not factoring in inflation which would likely push the cost up.
At the moment the clock is in our upstairs hallway. Being a time-only clock it is in the proper place since there are bedrooms running off the hallway and a strike clock would just keep guests awake.
We thought that it would replace the U M Muller German box clock in the kitchen but have now decided that the box clock will stay where it is for now. Besides, we like the sound of it.
And now to stand back and admire this true piece of Canadian art.
