The history of time
Don't be late for this time-telling event on Sunday at 3 p.m. in the Gould Barn, 1 Howlett St., Topsfield. The Topsfield Historical Society's monthly lecture series features Bob Frishman, a clock expert who will present "Telling Time in Early New England." Frishman's illustrated talk includes more than 70 pictures of timekeepers and the history of clocks and watches in New England, from the arrival of the Mayflower through the adoption of standard time by the railroads in the late 1800s. An informal "road show" appraisal will follow the presentation for anyone who brings clocks to be identified and evaluated. The event is free, and the public is welcome to attend. Refreshments will also be served. For more information, contact Anne Barrett at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-887-4024.
