Notes:
In addition to title, front cover states; "In Great Britain our prices generally include a visit of inspection to make sure that all the clocks are properly erected and in good order and adjustment. We then accept full responsibility for their safe-going and time-keeping, but we ask that they be put in the hands of a capable assistant provided with a copy of these instructions." The Synchronome Company address has been crossed out and replaced in ink, "Abbey Electric Clock Works, Mount Pleasant, Alperton, Middlesex." Pages 2-4 are instructions for the Erection of a Synchronome Master Clock and slave dials. Includes a diagram of the correct alignment of pendulum to movement. Pages 4-6 involve the management of a Synchronome Master Clock system including how to advance and retard dials. Page 6 has a "Notice to Those who Erect their own Installations." Page 7 is a, "Controlling Pendulum Erector's Certificate." This has been completed in pencil and shows that the clock was installed in Power House, Hanley, Staffs, on December 4th, 1923, by R.Stannard, Movement No. 1008. The back cover is a cartoon illustration of Old Father Time holding a placard reading "SYNCHRONOME"
