Judging by the artistic scaffolding that is being erected around our town clock, it's in for some serious refurbishment. I wonder if it's going to be the same colour!!. Any guesses folks?.

They could paint it to match the Queen's ballroom (can't remember what it's called now)

Perhaps someoneís seen my pics that Pierre has added to the photos forum and decided to go back to 1960s blue.

Nutsandboltdario, yes, they are great photos, and it was a good colour, but I think the colour it is now, makes it look more classy, and less prone to the fumes and pollution of today's heavy traffic.
As a matter of interest, what is the tall object to the right hand side of the clock, in the top photo?.

I have to confess, Butch, I have no idea. It looks like some kind of road sign, but for what purpose I donít know. However, looking at other clock photos, the colourised picture (that started the other thread off) taken from the top of Morgan Street has a similar mystery object in the bottom right corner, diagonally opposite to the Cambrian, where I took my photo. Somebody will solve the mystery Iím sure.

The blue from 60'/70' was nice and current red/yellow is nice too. I don't mind as long as it doesn't push any political agenda.
