I am slow to acknowledge the relocation of the traveling time exhibition, "Ships, Clocks & Stars," from Washington's Folger Library to the Mystic Seaport in Connecticut, where it re-opened on September 18. As my dear friend Will Andrewes pointed out at the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the show boasts marvels, including the "Mona Lisa of horology," otherwise known as John Harrison's fourth timekeeper, or H-4. (Will is standing next to me at center in the photo, directly--and appropriately--under the word "Clocks" in the poster.)
The exhibit will be on display at Mystic through March 28, 2016. After that, it sails to Sydney, Australia.
