Description

(Clock, Ship’s) 30-hour marine clock cased in brass and wood used on Ventura’s first pier
Mr. Joseph Wolfson, son-in-law of Juan Camarillo, spearheaded the creation of Ventura’s first pier and operated the wharf in its infancy. He used this marine clock on the wharf. Marine clocks use a balance wheel rather than a pendulum to mark time which means the clock is not affected by movement.
[Made in Forrestville, CT; Used in Ventura, California]
