Abstract

Description

Two turrets frame an illuminated Seth Thomas animated clock that sits below a statue of Saint George on a horse staring down a dragon. Originally, the clock chimed every 15 minutes, which it still does today, in sync with a performance by the statues. Red bulbs in the dragon�s mouth would light up to signify fire and Saint George would tilt towards the dragon as if lunging to spear him.
