This four-story high clock overlooks Parnassus Avenue and faces the UCSF Medical Center in San Francisco, California. The clock is enclosed in a three-sided glass wall housing. At the top of the glass are three clock faces at 45 degree angles to each other. Each of the clock faces displays all twelve hours as Roman numerals. The first letter of the days of the week appear on the interior of the four-story wall. I'm assuming there is an indication of the clock as to the current day.
An inscription on the wall inside the glass walls reads:
Carried by ship around Cape Horn, this
Seth Thomas Clock was installed on
the medical school of the affiliated
colleges in 1897. Surviving the 1906
earthquake, it served the university
and community for 70 years. Members
of the UCSF family have made possible
its restoration as a campus landmark.
February 20, 1982
