Combined catalogue of two exhibitions held simultaneously at Prescot Museum and the Williamson Art Gallery & Museum, Birkenhead. The aim was to celebrate Liverpool's year as European Capital of Culture by exhibiting fine examples of turret clocks, long-case clocks, chronometers and watches from the 'golden age' of manufacturing on Merseyside (the Switzerland of watchmaking in the 18th and early 19th centuries). A remarkable exhibition, to which the catalogue does full justice. Contributions by Edward Powell, Alan Smith, Alan Treherne and Chris McKay. Many of the exhibits are privately owned by members of the Society. 136 pp.
