Water Tower Clock

The 'Water Tower Clock' was Flinders Street Station's original clock. Built in 1883, it relocated to Spencer Street in 1910, then removed in 1967 following the rebuilding of the station. It was restored in 1993 and placed at the Scienceworks museum at Spotswood, then moved to Southern Cross Station in 2014.
