The Strange Bracken House Clock, London.


Perhaps the most interesting feature of the astronomical clock outside Bracken House in the City of London is the face of Winston Churchill at its centre.
He was a personal friend of Bernard Bracken, former chairman of the Financial Times, who used to own the building.
There are no clock hands — instead the outer dial with Roman numerals rotates to give the hour — whatever is in the usual 12 o’clock position is the current time.
The month of the year is also shown in this way, and the number directly below the face is the date of the month.
