I simply love this forum and am amazed at the photos that people have and their memories. I am a fairly new member, but wonder if anyone A) Can remember the wondrous Guinness Clock which used to make occasional appearances on the piece of land opposite the Coventry Theatre, at the bottom left corner of Trinity Street as you look up to Broadgate? and B) Does anyone have a picture of it? It was a Heath Robinson sort of thing with spirals, toucans, bells and music. I recall seeing it in the early to mid 1950's. No one I have spoken to has any memories of it and I am beginning to think it is all in my imagination. Can ANYONE prove I am not losing it please?

I certainly remember the Guinness clock and like you seem to have recollections of it at the bottom of Trinity Street. I think it was the clock from the Festival of Britain in 1951, happy memories of a visit there with my father on leave from the navy.

Thank you heritage, for restoring my sanity. After reading your post, I Googled "Festival of Britain Clock 1951" and there are some great pictures which brought memories flooding back
