    Default Albert Dock Clocktower.

    I've seen plenty of pic's of the Albert dock,but only one,or two,which include the clocktower! Just wondered if anyone had any of this,and details of it's history?Must admit, I never knew there was one!

    Off thread,but an interesting story here,about the fate of another of Philip Hardwick's designs,Euston Arch,in London,which was demolished after much protest,in the early 60's!

    Here's a bit more information about the Philip Hardwick's Euston Arch and the campaign to reinstate it. Maybe the Albert Dock Clock Tower's in a river somewhere?
