Just had to submit Melbourne’s most well-known clocks
for my first submission…
Meeting ‘…under the Flinders Street Clocks...’
was a common meeting spot years ago.
Not sure now though. Mobile phones make it much
easier to connect with someone in the city.
A couple of decades ago “they” were going to, or did,
change the analogue clock faces to digital.
Public outcry either stopped the change or had it reversed.
Checked Wikipedia to see if I was correct…not far away.
The original indicator clocks were removed from service in 1983 as part of a redevelopment of the station, with their replacement by digital displays planned.
An outpouring of public outrage and sentimentality saw the decision reversed within one day. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flinders_Street_railway_station
