7H91  The Telalarm

CASE is of ivory colored plastic.  DIAL 3 1/2" square metal with tan background and luminous numerals on a brown numeral band.  Metal BEZEL is tan color.  HANDS are luminous painted.  The MOVEMENT contains the standard, self-starting synchronous Telechron motor, with all the patented features that insure quiet, long life.  Telechron Clocks are approved by the Under-writers' Laboratories under the re-examination service.  CORD-6 ft. attached.  HEIGHT 4 1/4" WIDTH 5 3/16"  DEPTH 3"

This clock entered production July, 1945-- a month before V-J Day.  I'm not sure if I've ever seen the dial in the publicity photo below; "TELALARM" along with the pre-War, radial numerals.  The post-War 7H91's case was made of Lustron way out West at G-E Plastics in Pittsfield where they reportedly dumped their waste into the Housatonic River.  Well, the building is gone and Lustron is gone but we still have some Telalarms  (and I think the Housatonic is still out there).
