Sample text

The Liberty Bell was kept in storage for seven more years because the steeple had gone from rickety to rotten and there was nowhere else for it to hang. 40 The importance of the Pennsylvania State House, its exterior clocks, and the Liberty Bell receded for several decades after the American Revolution, receiving neither public acclaim nor funds. The decayed wooden steeple was taken down in 1781. The one-ton Liberty Bell was reinstalled a few years later, but this time behind the louvers of the tower’s middle level.

These horological innovations introduced “a temporality of smallness and sameness,” according to literary critic Stuart Sherman, in which “regular intervals” became a common feature not only of mechanical timekeepers but also of diaries, periodical literature, and newspapers. In his view, the “blanks” between the marks on the clock dial constitute the primary feature of modernity: that is, they represented a reproducible unit of measure that could be filled in an infinite variety of ways. 32 The form of time kept by early modern clocks and watches precipitated a profound shift in time consciousness among the elite who pondered them.

22 The petitioners claimed that announcing the hours served no public purpose except during the brief periods of legislative and judicial sessions. This might lead one to suspect that residents of Philadelphia did not yet have a use for the hours, except with regard to coordinating the meetings of governing officials. Such a conclusion would be misguided. Rather than living in a state of natural time where the hours did not matter, Philadelphians, like other colonials living in British North America, consulted a variety timekeepers and followed several different temporal systems including clock time.
