Clocks

Postby Pgcc93 » Thu May 27, 2004 9:11 pm

Yonks ago any self respecting building around the city would have an oversized timepiece attached to it's frontage. It wasn't just the preserve of churches and railway stations to inform the masses of the time, be it parish or railway time?. OK that's another subject on its own :)

Most of you will recognise this fine clock :!: but where exactly is it :?:

Image

OK! that was easy but not many folk get to see it from a birds eye view now do they :?: 8)

Right the challenge is on to get a pic of your local clock :wink: and post it up for all to enjoy. :D
And it doesn't have to be a magnificent specimen like the one above, the wee clock outside your local Co-Op/ toon hall /church etc.... will do the bizz :wink: get snapping people.
