Old Main Clock
The original Old Main building, constructed in 1880, was replaced in 1917, but the clock was saved. This little tower was built in the 1990s to house the four sided clock which keeps time but does not chime. The larger tower does chime using a Westminster chime pattern.
I really do like the architecture of these...ReplyDelete
Pity you can’t see if this is equal to the tower of Pisa or just a lens distortion.ReplyDelete
Just lens distortion. Nothing serious. Heard they began to straighten the Pisa tower so it wouldn't fall over.Delete
Marvelous find. Clock towers are rarity in this day and age.ReplyDelete
Muito bonita esta torre do relógio, aproveito para desejar um bom fim-de-semana.ReplyDelete

Love the sturdy smaller clock tower TFG, my first thought was the same as s.c. re Leaning Tower of Pisa 😉ReplyDelete
It is so good that they saved the old one and coordinated the new one so nicely to it!ReplyDelete
Very nice, indeed!ReplyDelete
Nice. I wonder if it's because people needed to see the time more accurately than just what for the chimes on the hour?ReplyDelete
Now that's a pretty pair! Beautiful light and colour in this shot.ReplyDelete
