Digital or Analog?
Today, with everyone reading time on their smart phones or computers, analog time seems to be nearly a thing of the past. Can your children tell time on an analog clock/watch? Not sure what that is?
One of the most common examples of the difference between analog and digital devices is a clock. On the analog clock, the time is represented by hands that spin around a dial and point to a location on the dial that represents the approximate time. On a digital clock, a numeric display indicates the exact time. from Dummies.com
Before the blinking digital clocks on our stoves, computers, and nightstands, we used a variety of timepieces. Above is a small collection from Bahoukas Antique Mall that include: a 10-minute hourglass used as a timer, a Travel Alarm Clock by Westclox, a Fisher Price children’s clock, a Burlington Special Pocket Watch, and a beautiful Coca Cola watch w/diamonds.
While doing a bit of research for this post, we discovered this tidbit in reference to a Lord Baltimore Alarm Clock by Westclox. Do you have one of these?
This weekend we ‘fall back’ as we turn our clocks back one hour to standard time. You get an extra hour of sleep before heading out to church on Sunday. Enjoy and savor. For those who love the morning sun, smile!
Watch for our next post when we share some wonderful older clocks including a grandfather clock and a mantle clock available at Bahoukas. Til then, make a plan to stop by Bahoukas. We’ll be watchin’ for ya!
