Time Clock, International Time Recorder

This is a factory time clock made about 1915 by the International Time Recording Company of Endicott, New York. In workplaces around the world, employees came to use such a clock to stamp their arrival and departure times on a card, and workplace managers used that information about time and attendance for payroll.
