I will be as happy as this clock face when we are all moved in. We closed on selling and buying a new house a week ago. Trying to tye lose ends, unpack, etc........We are getting there. The clock above is made by my husband. They end up being one of a kind.....we can't keep up. They sell very quickly. The face is of Tilly. Tilly is pretty much the mascot of Asbury Park. He dates back to the beginning of the century. He was used as an advertisement for the Palace Amusements. The building was torn down around ten years ago. The Wonder Bar across the street is adorned with a huge painting of Tilly........keeping his spirit alive.
