Exploring Photos with Jim Smith: Inside the clock tower
Inside_clock_tower_face_2

Very few people see what it looks like behind the face of the town’s clock tower and cenotaph.

As seen above, there are four light bulbs hanging behind each face. The original knob and tube wiring that lights these bulbs has never been changed. The milk glass that used to be in the clock face has been replaced with plexiglass. As the plexiglass was translucent white, it has been sprayed from the inside with yellow to give the face a warm appearance at night.
