Apologies for the lack of a post this week.

The photo for this week is of The Chamberlain Clock which is to be found in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham.

The clock was erected to celebrate the visit of Joseph Chamberlain to South Africa in 1903.  Chamberlain was one of the most important figures in the history of Birmingham.  An influential statesman of the late Victorian era Chamberlain was Mayor of Birmingham, member of Parliament and campaigner for improved living conditions and healthcare.
