02/16/2013 - Added a page for an expanded list of Serial Numbers for Electric Neon Clock Company clocks. Also, added more photos to the "Correct Time/Say It In Neon" gallery page, and a few to the Electric Ad Clock page, particularly interesting is a salesman's sample for the Cathedral style. I have also added patents for the Electric Ad Clocks which show an interesting evolution of the design over the years... 1932-1933! It's really interesting material to those who have opened up one of these cocks to try to get the drum mechanism working correctly (as I have had to do!).
02/03/2013 - The Neon clock Collectors Association is now on Facebook here! Note that this is a trial as I'm not sure how this really works...
