PLEASE, no multi invitations in your comments. DO NOT FEEL YOU HAVE TO COMMENT. My photos are free for anyone to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know. Thanks


St Mark's Clock is the clock housed in the St Mark's Clocktower. The first clock housed in the tower was built and installed by Gian Paulo and Gian Carlo Rainieri, father and son, between 1496 and 1499. The clock has had an eventful horological history, and been the subject of many restorations, some controversial.
