Lord Kelvin Multicellular Voltmeter - Galvanometer Sir William Thomson Patent #104 by J. White GlasgowLord Kelvin Multicellular Voltmeter - Galvanometer Sir William Thomson Patent #104 by J. White Glasgow  The body of the instrument retains nearly all of its original lacquer finish. (See pics). Nice overall cosmetic condition noting a crack in the top piece of glass w/ a bevel edge and the glass tube covering the pillar is also broken. I looked inside and there are a series of delicate vanes and wires. I did not go further or play around in there. Describing what it is or did is beyond my pay grade. I found an example in a Nebraska University collection with a complete write-up including history and operation.

Explosion Proof Clock General Electric Type C-9 Explosion Proof Clock  This unusual GE clock looks and is built like a watt hour meter.  Other similar but different examples in cast iron housings can be seen using Google but I read no definitive explanation for its purpose.  There is a brass tag on the side stamped "N. L. & O. P. Co." that indicates it is probably from Niagara Lockport & Ontario Power Co.  Not being a clock guy I can not tell you much more about who made the movement.  The top comes off and it looks to be a well made heavy duty instrument.  The key to wind it is present, but I have no idea if it works, or what, when, why or how the timer would be activated.   Different!!
