Those clocks in theSioux City, IA. old, OLD East Junior High School building on Morningside Avenue (before they made the old East High the junior high in 1972 and both buildings are now gone, I believe) had pneumatic clocks... all synchronized to a main pneumatic clock in the hallway outside the admin offices. A pump would drive air through the system advancing the hands one second. It was a fascinating system, and something I'd forgotten until just now. Damn I'm old. <sarchasm ON> Thanks Kevin! <sarchasm OFF>

Uhhhh... You're welcome?

Maybe a bit of Stones will help matters.
