Cafe clock

Cafe clock
Date: between 1865 and 1897
Large pendulum clock with time and calendar faces. Casing is made of pine with rosewood veneer, and the faces are covered with glass. The clock was used in a café owned by J.A. Johnston in Kansas City, Missouri, near the confluence of the Kansas and Missouri Rivers. During the 1903 flood, the water in the café rose to a depth of seven feet, two inches. The clock stopped at 9:22 a.m. on Tuesday, June 3, 1903, not long after the water began to recede. Johnston added a mark at the bottom of the case to indicate the height the water reached.

Wall clock

Wall clock
Creator: General Electric
Date: between 1970 and 1977
General Electric wall clock made of turquoise-colored plastic. "MTM" is handwritten on the back, referencing the CBS television series known as The Mary Tyler Moore Show. The show was a situation comedy featuring a female news producer portrayed by actress Mary Tyler Moore. It aired from 1970 to 1977. Much of the show was filmed in a fictional newsroom where Moore interacted with Lou Grant, a character portrayed by Kansas City actor Ed Asner. This clock was used as a prop on the show and later donated by Asner.
