Presently, we are particularly seeking one of the “slave” clocks from the old high school on Batavia Avenue.
We have the master clock on display at the Depot Museum and would like to have one of the “slaves” in another part of the museum to show how the master works. Can you help us?
We would like to hear your memories of playing at “Fairyland” on VanBuren Street. Won’t you send them to us please.
