    Hello Joe

    Excellent photograph, excellent weathervane.

    I have been through the Woodside Ferry terminal many times though had not noticed the weathervane. Do we know how long it has been up there?

    On the front face of the inner tower of Liverpool Prison [Walton jail] is a clock which is unusual in that instead of having 5 minute divisions
    between the figures on the face, [ ie:- between 12 and 1 or between 1 and 2 and so on ] it actually only has 4 divisions. Even staff who have worked there for many years have never noticed this, they are completely unaware of it and are therefor also unaware of the reason for it. This probably because the clock is situated overhead and in any case at casual glance looks like any other clock having figures 1 to 12 and two hands [minute hand and hour hand of course ]. However, the actual face of the clock is the original face of what was many years ago a ONE FINGERED CLOCK. The four divisions between each figure simply denoted `on the hour, a quarter past, half past, and a quarter to` the relevant figures. Sorry I have no photo for you, but as you may imagine prison authorities tend to frown upon people walking around their prisons with cameras hanging around their necks.
