You'll find this large clock, frozen in time, on Congress Street. There are just a few of these left in the city, and none of them are in working condition. I would imagine you'd have to throw a lot of coin to get them tick-tocking again. This iconic piece sits next to the sidewalk, along side the former Hay and Peabody Funeral Parlor. If you were planning to spend some time at this establishment, this large black timepiece was an easy landmark, as you made your way up Congress. The first time I walked through the door was the wake for one of the gang. Teddy died on December 8 (I'll never forget the date) at the age of 19, a senior in high school. We always knew he had trouble with his kidneys, but we never made the connection that our lives might be this short. I'll never forget looking around that room at the faces of my friends sitting with their parents. Some images are frozen in time. This clock has read 'five minutes after Five' for many, many years. ... and I thought time never stopped. Sometimes, stoppage would be a good thing.
