Courthouse Clock Dial Illuminated 1909

Lawrence County News September 16, 1909

Electric lights have been placed in front of each of the four dials of the courthouse clock, which is decided improvement over the old way of using illuminated dials. The lights are placed in a funnel shaped reflector so that the light itself is invisible. The Light and Water Company is furnishing the current to the city free of charge for one year.
