Clock tower

Uhrturm, Graz, Austria

"The larger hand shows the hours. The minute hand was added much later and was made
smaller than the hour hand. The French threatened to destroy the clock tower during the
invasion of 1809, but a ransom of 2987 florins and 11 farthings saved the building from
destruction." --Anders
