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.
