Seven years of work culminated Wednesday morning with the “crowning” of a J.C. Leadbetter street clock on Commercial Avenue in front of the Brown Lantern Tavern. Addition of the brass finial was the dream of former museum director Gary Cline, but it took lots of partners to make the dream a reality. Tom Thompson, President of the Anacortes Museum Foundation, also enlisted the support of the Noon Kiwanis Club. Others involved in the project included: Bob Mortenson, artist and advisor; Doug Booth, artist and carver; Glen Veal, foundry casting; Brad Brown, artist and welder; Bill Larson, engineer and advisor; Frank Orr, craftsman; Steve Oakley, museum director. Also on hand for the installation was W.T. Preston curator Vernon Lauridsen, who will be in charge of clock maintenance.
