Stopped Clock - Cairns Australia

(viewed 3902 times)
Bookmark and Share

I've just got back from a holiday to Australia. Our last stop was in Cairns
(with plans to see the Great Barrier Reef) when I spotted a clock at the top
of a monument with the incorrect time. I thought of your web site, but then
on closer inspection I noticed that the hands were actually painted onto the
clock. I was a little confused and read the plaque next to the monument.
This is what it said:

"At 4:28am on the 25th April 1915 the Anzac landing at Gallipoli commenced.
The hands of the clock faces on this cenotaph are set at that time to
commemorate that historic event"

So this is a stopped clock that doesn't need fixing!

Best Regards
