1B915  Commercial Clock

This old fella returned from the hostilities with a replacement B rotor.  (It had been the 1H915 before the War.)  You're not seeing things; the clock on the right has the numbers backward.  It belongs to Pee Wee the Barber who reversed the coils so the rotor runs backwards and stuck the reverse numbers on the dial so his clients could tell time behind them by looking in the mirror in front of them.  Clever idea, no?  If you ever find yourself in Webster, MA with long hair, stop by Pee Wee's for the best $7 haircut in New England.  As you can see, he opens early!
Production of this model was halted due to the War but resumed afterward (with the changes noted above).
