Nottingham curiosities

1. Above eye level

In Victoria Street. The clock was made by the firm of G & F Cope and Co, for the ironmongers who owned the shop in about 1950.  It was later restored, and according to an article in the Lenton Times was in full working order in 1982. Alas it seems to have been stopped now - one face read 4 o'clock and the other face 2.25.
At one time the two blacksmiths would strike the anvil every quarter hour.

Interesting curiosities above eye-level! In Malta, some churches have two clocks telling different times apparently to confuse the devil.
