Collingwood Town Hall clock 52/24/2 #fp13 #wind, a photo by Collingwood Historical Society on Flickr.
The clock in the Collingwood Town Hall tower is a good example of the complexity of the mechanisms needed to wind and keep going a four faced clock in a tower. The clock was not installed in the tower at the time of the opening of the new Collingwood Town Hall but was installed a couple of years later. It is thought to have been donated by Cr Eade and to have been originally installed in the Melbourne GPO.

My great grandfather, John Dean Vimpani installed a number of turret clocks for Gaunts. Family history says he installed the current clock in the Melbourne GPO and that he installed this clock in the Collingwood Town Hall.
