New LH Clock!

clock1

Remember when some film production company destroyed our LH clock, way back in 2006? Well we finally have a replacement, and it only took about 4 years for that to happen.  It’s similar to the original, but different. I was hoping they’d replace it with something modern, like a big LED display that flashes the time, and maybe some text messages we could send to it. Now that would be fun! But they kept with the old-timey theme instead. Oh well, at least its working!

    The base was a lot wider before. I like the original better 🙁 What’s with that lame concrete square below it?

    I just want to thank the customer of ours (Sloan’s Dry Cleaners on Broadway) who saw the incident happen and got hold of me right away. Who knows? We may not have a clock today if it hadn’t been for her letting me know so I could inform the Chamber about it because when I called them, they had no clue the clock was down and much less that it was the film crew. Gracias customer of ours.

  3. You know… considering how bad California is doing, it SEEMS LHTS seems to be a bit wealthy with renovations, the LINCOLN HEIGHTS posts, the clock, & we even got BRIGHTER Street lamps on my street.

    I was thrilled that we once again have a clock..So many great memories … Of course it’s not the exact same as our old one. It was even brought to my attention that the clock is installed in the wrong direction. But hey better than nothing!

    I don’t really like this new clock :p
    Yes they did put facing the wrong way and it doesn’t look like the original (they messed up big time) again it’s better than nothing.

    After looking at some other street clock images on google it appears the clock is at the correct position. It’s suppose to face traffic or pedestrians in either direction. Why would you have it face across the street and the building next to the clock?. Back in the day the street clock was used to attract business in front of a jewelry store and I’m pretty sure the owner had enough time pieces in his jewelry store so there would be no need to look at his street clock outside. So that means the clock we all knew and loved was facing the wrong direction.

    That’s exactly what I was thinking Javi! It makes more sense the way it is now, visible from the sidewalk as you approach it rather then just right in front of it.

    I passed by the street clock at night and it’s also lighted! It also has speakers on each side of the clock head and my guess it’s suppose to chime or ding on the hour?

    I loved hearing the clock chime! That was awesome.

    Esneeky Meatchelle: Actually, you can than the previous board of the Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council for the light posts, benches, trash cans, etc.

    You see, the money came from the City years ago. Y pues, the Chamber was so slow in making decisions on what to do with the money that the Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council found out and stepped in to save the money before it was lost.

    As time was ticking by, there were penalties for not using the funds, and thousands were lost. But we managed to get public meetings set up and ask residents what they wanted and made it happen.

    The Chamber is good for nothing.
