THE PUBLIC CLOCKS OF MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 10 April 1889

THE PUBLIC CLOCKS OF MELBOURNE. The demolition of the tower of the fMelbourne General Post Office in order to permit of the original design of that. structure hing carnried out nckessitated the removal of the public clock. The absence, for some months p:lt, of its familiar face and han monious chimes has occasioned much public inconvenience, and has accen tuated the fact that Melbourne proper is singularly deficient in public time pieces. ,Thg, two" public clocks''- the term is one of courtesy more than of merit--are the one in the tower of the Melbourne Towl-hall and the turret clock at the Flinders-street station.
