30 Dockyard Clock at Waterfront in Halifax, Canada

You will notice this baby-blue tower with a clock and weather vane along the Halifax Boardwalk. But you might consider it unimportant and keep walking. Stop and take a second look. This is Canada’s oldest working clock. Dockyard Clock was manufactured in London in 1767. In 1772, it was placed inside a domed cupola. In 1996, this heritage timepiece was gifted to the city by the Royal Navy and installed here. The placement marks the spot where the first British settlers arrived in 1749.
