Does anybody know what time it is?

Anyone that has been in the Bay Area for any length of time will know this iconic art deco clock on top of the toll booth of the Golden Gate Bridge. I recently saw workers removing it and all I could think was sadly it's a digital world and they are probably going to put in a digital time piece. 

I divert here for a moment to relay a story of a guy in his early 20's that asked me what time it was while I was on the phone. I held up my arm to show him my watch and was met with a gaze of total bewilderment. It then became apparent to me that this digital child could not read my analog watch. Yikes!!!

Anyway, the clock on the Golden Gate Bridge is only gone temporarily. It should be back in October looking brand new.
