Further Information - The ornate clock stands astride the Roman wall which surrounds Chester. It was presented to the City in 1897, on the occasion of the 60th Anniversary of Queen Victoria's ascension to the throne in 1837. The tall building behind it would have been (when this photo was taken) the Midland Bank - today it is the HSBC. It was originally the North & South Wales Bank, then the London City & Midland, then the London Joint City & Midland, and so to the Midland. It's façade has numerous coloured shields of arms. The white building is Montague Burton's Tailors, and next but one is W.H. Smith (formerly National Westminster). A Standard Vanguard Series 1 and an Alvis TA are the nearest cars.
