In an era where the mobile phone is replacing the wrist watch, it is still possible to find the time by public time piece. Above is the first public clock in Australia, atop Hyde Park Barracks in Macquarie Street. Built at the behest of Governor Lachlan Macquarie whose bicentenary we celebrate this year (1810 - 1821), it was designed by the convict architect, Francis Greenway.
