Summary

Summary

For the first time, alarm clocks with legs, between 1880 and 1935, are brought together in a single volume. Over 375 black and white photos and catalog pages illustrate the fascinating alarms affectionately known as "tin cans" and nickel alarms. Included are examples from American clock companies Ansonia, Attleboro, Gilbert, Ingersoll, Ingraham, Lux, New Haven, Parker, Scott, Sessions, Seth Thomas, Waterbury, Welch, and Westclox, as well as international makers. Private label dial alarm clocks are also featured. These clocks are organized alphabetically by manufacturer and further by their model names. Brief histories of each firm are provided. Values are found in the captions. This book is a must for anyone fascinated by alarm clocks ... and everyone who has been awakened by one!
