Tait Memorial Clock, Baker Square, Limerick, Éire

While many of the monuments that you find will be of a twentieth century vintage, there are a few from the one before it and this is one of those. It dates from 1867 and was erected in gratitude to a Scotsman named Peter Tait who had a factory making uniforms for the British Empire as well as being active in Limerick city civic life. My first awareness of the thing dates from when I part read Adrian MacLoughlin's Streets of Ireland but I did pass it on previous visits to the city before July 2014 when this view was captured.
