The gorgeous Chester Clock. The clock/tower marks the site of the orginal entrance to the Roman fortress and town (Deva Victrix), ca. AD 74 or 75. Rebuilt through the centuries, the present gateway dates to AD 1768 and the clock was added in 1899 to commemorate the Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee in 1897.
1960s MOD Kaiser (made in West Germany) Pedestal Alarm Clock. Mid Century Modern, space age design. The psychedelic era with cleaner lines - but the typography on the numerals give it away... Purchased from the UK.
