Clock Repairs

September 13th:  Leif Cogswell, owner of Peak Window Cleaning in Owings Mills, is busy trying to fix the broken clock face atop the Bromo Seltzer tower on Eutaw Street, Baltimore, Md.  Leif Cogswell of Peak Window Cleaning in Owings Mills managed to reset the time to 10:56 a.m. But by 12:10 p.m., the time appeared stuck at 11:15.  Cogswell used ropes to climb down the outside to adjust the hands while David Graf of Kittery Point, Maine, worked on the 100-year-old time piece from the inside.  They got three of the clock faces working, but the fourth remains broken.  Cogswell and Graf had not pinpointed the problem by early this afternoon, but they were optimistic.  The 15-story Bromo Seltzer Tower at Eutaw and Lombard streets — modeled after the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, Italy — was built in 1911 and is being converted into artists’ studios that also will have gallery space and a coffee shop when it opens in October or November.
