TQ3004 : Clock Tower

near to Brighton and Hove, Great Britain

Clock Tower
Clock Tower
Built by the corporation in 1887 to celebrate Queen Victoria's golden jubilee. This view is from Queens Road and looks down West Street to the sea, a route many daytrippers from the station would follow. The road it crosses is North Street a major shopping street in Brighton, the building that is currently occupied by Waterstones was purpose built for Burtons in the late 1920s when West Street was widened and still bears a stone inscription between the roof and top floor windows. Until the 1980s public conveniences were based underneath the tower but have been bricked up and the paved diagonal stretch in front was until the end of the 1990s North Street Quadrant and open to traffic.
