Color postcard from circa 1907-1910 of the floral clock in Water Works Park in Detroit, Michigan. The clock was created by the park's first superintendent of grounds, Elbridge A. "Scrib" Scribner. The park was created for both utilitarian and recreational purposes. The primary purpose of the area was a water pumping system to provide water to the city of Detroit, but the area also included tennis courts, baseball fields, swimming and picnic sites for the public. The large standpipe and the floral water-powered clock were popular attractions at the park.
