The Alibi Clock

The Alibi Clock in downtown Vallejo exonerated a labor radical accused of a parade bombing that killed ten people.

[Gary Eagleton, 01/04/2020]

Tom Mooney was accused of hurling a suitcase bomb at San Francisco's Preparedness Day Parade on July 22, 1916. The explosion killed ten and injured 40. But a photo of Mooney standing next to the clock showed that he was 30 miles away in Vallejo when the bomb was thrown.
