We often hear of time machines which
are designed to transport us back
or forward in time.
These machines only exist in our minds,
novels and movies such as the
Back to the Future series.
Yet all round are…
…time measuring machines
Big ones on Bell Towers…
…much smaller versions to hag on a kitchen wall…
…and finally, Melbourne’s famous landmark
The Flinders Street Station clocks.
Let’s meet under the clocks
was an oft used phrase of
Melbournians and visitors alike.
A few decades ago the analogue clock faces
were going to be replaced by their digital cousins.
This caused much discontent in Melbourne
that a compromise was reached.
These analog faces are now digitally powered.
