In 1888, Louis Dewailly, mayor of Amiens, decided to construct a clock near the railway station. The iron column was built in rococo style. A few years later, sculptor Albert Roze added a bronze statue of a woman-- the goddess of spring. The people of Amiens baptised her "Marie Sans Chemise". This became a place where lovers meet each other. The beautiful clock on this piece was lost in the Second World War but a replica was made in 2000. The background is the Cathedral of Amiens.
