Clock Cleaned

The clock tower tops the Ayer Mill of the American Woolen Co. The mill closed in 1955 and sat empty, with the clock falling into disrepair. The clock was cleaned and restored in 1991, and now New Balance assembles shoes in the building underneath.

Ayer Mill

This is the Ayer Mill, and the train tracks that ran along Merrimack Street. This mill exists currently across the street from the Wood Mill. The clock tower is only a foot shorter than the tower at British Parliament, otherwise known as Big Ben.

New Balance Building

Nice to see that the beautiful tower is still on the job
