I have been given a Froment clock, based on design by J.R.L. Orange. The clock was built by L.G. Bateman of Toronto in 1968. ME Vol 134, No 3359 page 1212 has a photo of the clock. I am wondering if there are originals of the photos in the archive somewhere. I would love to get a high res copy if that is possible.

The clock appears to be a bit more complete in the article than it is at present.

Tku, I have the actual issue (actually all issues from Vol 69 to 192 , I was hoping someone at ME had access to the original photo (there is an allusion to more than one supplied).

I have some photos taken of his workroom/shop with the clock on a desk as well but they are out of focus just enough to not be much help.

When I wrote articles for ME back in pre digital days all original photographs were returned to me after publication.

Thank you Rod

I will see what magic Photoshop can accomplish with the one in the magazine issue, thankfully it is not a photo copy.
