I’ve been known to buy artifacts related to the extended Rorick family on eBay, but this item is a wee bit out of my usual price range. It’s a Waltham Eight-Day Car Clock watch that belonged to Captain William C. Tyrrell, of Beaumont, TX. I’m posting it here in the event that someone else may be interested.
Starting tomorrow and going through January 6, this blog will be devoted to Eleanor Walling, the Bob-Haired Bandit of California, whose exploits fascinated the newspapers beginning in 1923. I have found stories about her in newspapers all over California as well as Salt Lake City, UT: Vancouver, WA; Selma, AL; and others. Enjoy!
