Dear DMC


Here’s one for museums/collections.  Picture in today’s newspaper shows the curator beginning the mammoth task of turning 600 clocks back one hour at the end of British Summer Time.

PS My wife’s grandfather was in charge of the clocks at Windsor Castle – where they have a similar workload at this time of year.



Dear Steve,

Thanks for pointing out this timely museum to our readers.

We googled. There’s an interesting article in the Belfast Telegraph [click here] about the museum.

The article points out the curator’s large task twice year. 625 clocks to change. Museum staff start on Saturday to get all the clocks changed by the time they are supposed to change on Sunday. Friends drop by to help.
