What is it?: It’s time to dial back the clock.

Time to dial back the clock

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - NEWS -

DAT­ING back to the ‘50s or ‘60s, this week’s What Is It item was used to en­sure the safety of some­thing.

You can see in the di­als pic­tured that the de­vice would have been used to test or mea­sure some­thing.

Could it be the weather, my mood (typ­i­cally grumpy), or some­thing else al­to­gether?

This par­tic­u­lar item is be­lieved to be Bri­tish built. It was used at the Si­los in Sala­manca be­fore they were wa­ter­front apart­ments.

I’m not sure if these hints are flow­ing quite as well as they should this week.

Has Carl Jack­son from Ar­chive An­tiques pro­vided yet an­other What Is It that is too tricky to guess cor­rectly? If you know what his item is please shoot us an email at tassieliv­ing@news.com.au
