He became a watchmaker and opened his own shop in 1898. in 1906 he moved to Port Huron where he secured the contracts with Grand Trunk and Pere Marquette rail roads to service the watches of the train crew. Each of the tags on the board behind him represents a customers watch in for service.
An old photo showing Sylvesters Drug store on the right. It is a coffee shop and shoe store now. Clarence rented a corner counter at the drug store to get started. Later he moved to 206 Huron up the street.
At some point in the 1920’s CW purchased a street clock. An icon to all that a jeweler and watchmaker were available to serve the communities needs. Notice the name on top – these hoods were made so you could customize the clock for its location. Seeley Mosher joined his father and stayed at this location through WWI and WWII and the Korean conflict.
George Mosher joined his father in business when he came home from WWII . He expanded into fine china, crystal and silver gifts as well as watches and gems. In 1965 he purchased a bigger building and along with other merchants – modernized downtown…..
