Thoughts on restoring Kirkland’s ferry clock | LETTER
April 4, 2012 · Updated 3:00 PM
I am more than 80 years old, therefore I have nothing to lose. Here are my offerings:
The local group with a great history of clock restoration rebuilt the King Street Station clock. It was a success.
And I believe they have accepted perpetual winding and maintenance responsibility. Ask them how many steps there are from Fourth Avenue to the clockworks.
Dismantling clocks is not in the City of Kirkland’s Public Works Department’s scope of work. Shame.
Forever, there will be nautical historians.
Amongst them, they have all editions of all Lake Washington ferry schedules. Even the line almost to Issaquah.
