The Town Clock (May Theme Day is NUMBERS)

The Roman numerals on First Presbyterian Church's tower serve as the town clock. A carillon plays after the hour rings. The clock is located at a main downtown intersection across from City Hall.

There are more than 180 City Daily Photo Blogs from around the world that are displaying numbers today. Check them out!

I've become a great fan of outdoor clocks. Lately I've been noticing more and more new ones. This old one is very nice and a great choice for theme day.

April said...

What a wonderful clock and building.

marley said...

Looks a bit like my photo! Except mines on a bar!!

Happy Theme Day!

Kim said...

Perfect, crisp photo! I'm guessing you shot this at 200mm? The three arches and clock face remind me a great deal of the clock tower on our King Street Train Station here in Seattle, except the bricks are much more salmon in color. I've heard of the red clay soil of the south, and maybe the bricks were made locally?
Happy theme day!
