  1. Watch and clock makers, with beautiful clocks on dispaly, still in business in 2014. Wonderful photos, thank you. I live near Victoria and mourn all of this.

  2. Jenkins is retiring, and it seems that since no one is taking over his business the shop is closing down! Last chance to visit it, quick!!!
