Photographer's Note

Situated close to customs house square in the regenerated docks area of Belfast is the Albert clock.
Built as a memorial to Queen Victoria's late Prince Consort Albert between 1865 and 1869 and designed by W.J. Barre.The tower which stands at 113 feet tall was built on reclaimed marchy land from around the river Farset and as a result of being built on wooden piles the top of the tower now leans 4 feet off the perpendicular. Due to this movement of the tower in 1924 some of the ornamental work and the belfry were removed.
