Mr Monkey in the Belfry

"It's a fascinating mechanism"

Mr Monkey looking at the clock mechanism Mr Monkey looking at the music box mechanism

On the fifth floor, Mr Monkey inspected the main clock, which was installed in 1912. He was more interested in the giant musical box sort of thing next to the clock. Every fifteen minutes this is activated by the clock. Mr Monkey watched entranced as the drum started turning, the pins hit levers on the frame, and the wires going up through the ceiling worked the hammers on the carillon on the floor above.
