Photograph by E. Baumgartner AS THE CLOCK PEDDLER USED TO LOOK A Black Forest citizen dons the costume and pack that once were as well known all over the Continent as the scissors grinder in America. The clocks had wooden wheels and the product had a new impetus when, early in the 17th century, the cuckoo clock was introduced.

Only the newer houses have chimneys. The space beneath the benches is used for storage (see illustration, page 235).
