Grass Mountain Clock


Walt took this photo of a clock that was somewhere on Grass Mountain in 1979. I don't recall seeing it but it's apparently still there, as shown in this Yangmingshan National Park website. You'll have to scroll down a little ways to see it.

In the above photo, just above the number six, there appear to be four English letters that may be "RADD." Does anyone have any idea what that stood for?

Don,
It's probably "RADO" for the Swiss, Rado Watch Company that is heavily marketed in Taiwan. Here's a link to one of those big RADO neon signs in Taipei that I remember seeing: http://tinyurl.com/bj4jmd

John, you get today's ATTABOY Award. Thanks much.

I also received a note from Roger, over at the Linkou website. He pointed to this link on their site that shows more images of the clock:
