Re: #10

A clock that kept watch over the city's heart and the crossroads of downtown commerce for over half a century is now being quarantined in a modernized parking garage. An ornate anomaly that was old-timey at birth (drawing inspiration from the Late Middle Aged Wells Cathedral clock) and is arguably out of step with the cool, contemporary Market.

Let's take a timepiece that was once a landmark for meetings 365 days a year and put in a glass box that is open to the public 4 days a week. And in recognition of the clock's rich civic history, let's erase the name from the clockface and leave the brass historical plate affixed to a pebblestone obelisk supporting a security camera three blocks away.

A monument, to be sure.
