1865 – Design for Albert Memorial Clock, Belfast

Architect: Raffles Brown


“The illustration in this number is a design sent in to the recent Albert Memorial Competition in Belfast, by Raffles Brown, which, although not one of those which came to the front and elicited such warm discussion, we have selected as being a very graceful and meritorious composition, and admirably adapted to the site. Viewed new, however, merely as an ideal clock tower, it is unnecessary that it should be accompanied by any of those particulars as to height, materials, &c., and proposed cos, with which it was necessary to invest it for the special purposes of the competition.” Published in The Dublin Builder, January 1 1866.
