Clock, Shanks FamilyAbout this object
Eva (Evelyn) Shanks of Edendale purchased this clock from Hebert's Grocery at Lawrence in 1913 as a replacement for a clock she had sold. Eva married Jack (John) Shanks in Scotland, and prior to Eva's shift to New Zealand she was told that clocks would not go after crossing the equator. As a result, before immigrating to New Zealand she sold the clock she was given as a wedding present. Ironically, the replacement clock was made in the United States, and therefore crossed the equator when being imported to New Zealand.Maker
