Is that the Peach Tree bottom right? The chimney bottom left, I guess, is in the Evening Post complex. 

If my memory serves me well, and it may not here, that clock bottom right on the Evening Post building was removed from the Guardian Journal building and installed here in the early 60s. (Maybe earlier, not 100% sure).

Archibald Clarks Shop opposite The Yorker on Mansfield Rd53041-1-280-99999-unpad.jpgArchie was on the case as regards the prostate..even then!

Billed himself as a Botanical Dispenser..indeed he was..and made up an excellent 'stopper'.

His spanish wood was good too.

The interior would be worth a fortune today.

Wonder if it was cast at the bell foundry in Loughborough. I used to watch them casting bells when I worked in the Herbert Morris offices just opposite.

Ya beat me to it Ian, but just to add a bit, the clock was built by 'Copes ', our very own word famous watch maker.
