The following photograph was taken on the 10th June 1982, at 6pm. By this time the clock needed to be renovated, and the occasion in the photograph was the grand switch-on following the work done by Smith of Derby, the world renowned clock-makers. The two ladies switching the clock on are Mavis Drewry and her sister Barbara. They used to run the chip along with their parents.
