Mission Accomplished: Clocks are re-installed in old church tower [Pictorial]

Columbia's Dr. Larry Laird and a few helpers re-installed four 19-century clocks in an 1855 Philadelphia church over the weekend. Laird spent seven months refurbishing the clocks. The backstory is HERE.

Each of the four dials is 48" in diameter. 

The dials are loaded into a van.
