Black and White # 11 Clock Tower

Black and white photograph of a clock tower by susan sheldon nolen

I shot this leaning out the window of a car.  I love the ornateness of the Sheerness Clock Tower.  Off the end of those curved hooks in 1902 hung fabulous lamps. It was erected in honour of King Edward VII and Queen Alexander. The cost?  An amazing £360.00.  It’s believed to be the tallest clock tower in Kent!  But what a different world we live in now! Time is on our phones!  But I rather like looking up and seeing this old-fashioned way of making sure one is not late for tea!  No hiding from Father Time when the clock tower is on the go!

Black and White Week 11

About susan sheldon nolen

It’s rare to catch me without coffee, a form of camera, or my beloved wire fox terriers. I love the history, the art, and it’s a massive part of my life, as I either paint, write, or get interrupted by my dogs, reminding me of the real world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.
