Clock Tower on Waterfront in Waterford, Ireland

When this granite tower was built in 1863, people called it the Fountain Clock because it had a trough for watering horses. The four-sided, cast-iron clocks within diamond panels had just turned noon when I started photographing. The freestanding, gothic-revival design was by Tarrant. The city’s famous landmark is the demarcation between the Coal and Meagher’s Quays along the waterfront.
