A Photo a Week Challenge: Clocks

Clocks are everywhere and in many forms. When I travel, I often visit churches, cathedrals and castles, many of which have clock towers. Clocks are imperative when trying to make sure you’re on time for a plane or train and town halls and squares often have a clock in them, too. Here in Halifax, we have a well known clock on the side of Citadel Hill, built in the early 1800s. It still has living quarters in it today though there isn’t an in-residence clock keeper anymore.
