It's Time for Hardware ... and THEME DAY

It's the first of the month and that means it is THEME DAY on City Daily Photo. This month's theme, chosen by the vote of CDP members, is TIME.

I found this interesting clock in the Rogers Park neighborhood. It is on the Clark-Devon Hardware store (at Clark Street and Devon Avenue) which has been a multi-generational family business since 1924. I really like the clock hands: the minute hand is a 3 13/16 gear wrench and the hour hand is a 5 1/8 inch box end wrench. (That I can even tell you the type of these wrenches is a testament to how customer-friendly and informative their website is.)
