Another travelling 1950s version

This is yet another version of the Guinness Clock which was photographed in Weston-Super-Mare in the early 1950s.

It would be interesting to know just how many ‘travelling versions’ of this popular clock were to be seen around our coasts.

  • Hi Christopher
    This looks like one of the eight smaller replicas built based upon the original Battersea design. If you have not already seen it, follow the link on the right of the page ‘A Mystery Solved’, where there is a brief item about the clocks.

  • There was an identical clock in the Jephson Gardens in Leamington Spa in the 1950’s when the town hosted the Lights of Leamington each year.

  • I remember this clock on the seafront in Great Yarmouth (1956-1958?). I too have this photo.

  • I seem to remember seeing a Guinness clock in the early 60s at Trentham Gardens and also in North Wales either at Rhyl or Prestatyn.

  • Hi, I have a lovely photograph of my mother and myself with my brother and sister standing in front of the Guinness Clock that was on show in Southend-on-Sea in the 1950s.

  • I remember the clock at Whitby. I was only young in my pram then-born in 1955 so must have toured after this date. My sister remembers it well she is 2 years older than me.
