Jubilee Clock

By TrevBatWCC    
This clock, located at the junction of Victoria Street and Loch Promenade in Douglas, was made to commemorate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. It was manufactured by Walter Macfarlane & Co at the Saracen Works in Glasgow, and donated by George William Dumbell in 1887. It was actually working and showing the correct time too! 😃
I only took a handful of images in Douglas; the whole of the seafront was under construction, the road being re-surfaced, tram lines being replaced and the pavement widening, ready for the rush(?) of visitors for the summer season I think! Being fenced off, there were only a few openings to allow access onto the promenade from the seafront hotels. Part of the works can be seen just left of the clock.
Again, to help pass a bit of time away, had a fiddle around with the image in Photoshop for a bit of selective colouring! 😁

Very nicely done Trevor! I also like the George Formby image from yesterday (sorry I don't think I got round to commenting 🥴 ) and am sending Cedric the carrier pigeon with a gong in its talons! 👍 🏆
