Another Belfast Clock .....

I like clocks, I like clocks that operate properly, I like clocks that display the correct time, I like unusual clocks, I don't wear a watch, I like clocks. This unusual clock, which is located on the piazza in Belfast's Fountain Centre, was manufactured in Hamburg and comprises 24 bronze bells which play various melodies on the hour.

There are two sets of figures: a millennium set featuring King David, John the Baptist and Joseph & Mary and a set of 10 figures from Alice in Wonderland. On alternate hours each set revolves around the clock pillar (decorated in mosaic by local artist Bernie Sutton).
