A Mr. Whittaker (otherwise unidentified; needs identity confirmed and additional biographical information) stands on a sunny Roslyn, Washington sidewalk. Remarks on enclosure read: "Mr Whittaker with clock cast and rooster 2-35." n the ground beside him is a clock case in the shape of a church. Much of the piece looks to have been made using a scroll saw and can roughly be classified as: scrollwork or fretwork in an Eastern European style. See other Didley Club scroll work piece in this collection. SEE ALSO: panieri0256; panieri0313 for other photos of this clock/clock case. Mr. Whittaker is also holding an unfinished rooster sihlouette. This rooster was later painted and appears above the sign for the Didley Club's garage in panieri0156.
