Town Crier, Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg, Virginia


The Town Crier rings his bell to draw the attention of  passersby to announce an auction at Market Square "at 1:30 of the clock." He walked to various strategic locations on Duke of Gloucester Street in Colonial Williamsburg fulfilling his duties.

I bet he attracts more attention than an announcement on a loudspeaker!
