Customs Clock

Reader Melissa Field wrote in with a query I can’t answer (not unusual) but perhaps the colloquium can provide the information.

Is that a CLOCK on the side of the Customs and Excise Building in Bay Terrace? At the moment there are NO HANDS at all. But all of the old photos on Google  have one hand around the 9. My husband thought it might be a vertical sundial. He seems to remember that there was always only ONE hand.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you,
Melissa Field

    I grew up in Durban and I was told that a clock was sent from I assume the U.K. but the ship sank en route. In memorium it was decided that a clock would never be placed in the spot prepared for the clock.
