Pendulum Clock - Bradford Club

This pendulum clock hangs on the wall at the Bradford Club. The inscription on the face reads 'M. Rhodes & Sons, Bradford'. I didn't notice this at the time I took the picture, not until I went through the photos later at home. I had a quick look on the internet and came up with a little bit of information on Manoah Rhodes. Born 1810 and indentured to silversmith John Allot in 1822, set up his own business in Bradford in 1836 and was joined by his two sons as the business expanded in later years. Not a great deal of information, but interesting nonetheless.
