Archie Clapham trained as an engineer and for years ran the small power station that powered the Wellington tram system. He also collected clocks. By the time he was in his late 70's he had four hundred of them crammed into his house. After moving to Whangarei he sold his collection to the local Council and today Claphams National Clock Museum has over fourteen hundred time pieces.
