Where in Alhambra is this clock?

This clock is over 100 years old. Can you guess where in the city this photo was taken? Submit your answer in the comments section below!

Did you guess last week's photo? That giant oak tree belonged to Dorothy Banbury, who lived on Curtis Avenue near Alhambra Road for five decades.

  1. That beautiful clock sits on the south side of Main St. between First Street and Garfield. Originally, it was situated in front of the Hellman Jewelry Store one block east.

    About 20 years ago, the city enlisted the talents of the late Dr. Howard P. (“Hap”) Holladay, a prominent speech communication professor and administrator at California State University, Los Angeles, to repair the clock, which had been broken for some time. At one time, Dr. Holladay was president of the National Association of Watch & Clock Collectors, Inc. My son and I attended the re-dedication ceremony in front of the clock in its present location and recall being treated to lunch after the event. The clock, which is more than a century old, was again repaired a few years ago. Every time I pass by that clock, I think of D.r Holladay, who died in his 60s, much too young.

  2. Main Street, south side just a few doors west of Garfield. Used to be in front of Wellman’s Jewelers.

  3. It’s on the south side of Main St (in front of Blockheads); between Garfield Ave and 1st St.
