Just a vignette of my Grandfathers Train Watches. These watches were all adjustable and needed to be kept accurate to within 1 minute per month, an astounding feat considering the pure mechanical movements.
These watches are all "Jeweled" movements, meaning the moving parts are suspended by Jewel Bushings.
These watches are all from the early 1900's or late 1800's.
Camera was a Sony DSC-R1 10.3 Mp. Still camera, Software= Roxio "Motion Pictures HD" to compose and iMovie HD to add titling. Enjoy, but DON'T BE LATE!
NOTE: The downloaded Quicktime version is SOOO much smoother and more pleasant. Check it out! You can download it from the lower right corner of this page.
This is a little footage from Dr. Bill Reynolds' Birthday Party in Mt. Shasta on 2/9/2008.
Bill turned 90 years old!
Joseph William Reynolds, born Dunsmuir Ca, 2/7/1918, celebrated with friends and family. 2 Cakes were served and a fine dinner. All round had a rousing time!
NOTE: The first Video I posted had Bill's name wrong. This has been corrected by the Village Idiot Editor, Me.
Bill is the Eldest Living Dunsmuir, Ca Native Son.
