Inside the Ferry Building clock tower


Inside the Ferry Building clock tower:

Using a combination of blocks, pulleys, ropes, and a far greater understanding of physics than pretty much everyone, Phelan has used the "old-fashioned way" of reaching the precipice of everything [...]

That includes the Ferry Building's clock tower, a 121-year-old building that has only two people inside of it during the year: the clockmaster, who goes in twice a year to change the time, by hand, for daylight-saving time, and Phelan, who spends a day inside the postcard-worthy edifice twice a month on average.

Outside of them, only a handful of people have been inside of the clock tower ever, and -- as I find out as we make our way through the "Clock Tower Access" door -- all of them have signed their names inside of its walls.

Previously, previously, previously, previously, previously.
