Clockwatcher Flinders Street Station B & W 1958 by 


Under the Clocks was where everyone met at Flinders Street. This meant both people who were waiting for a specific person, or in some cases people who were just cruising around.This was taken on my way home from work, and I was attracted by the light and shade.
There was a full scale map of the metropolitan area which my main figure is examining, and then over the entrance are clocks indicating for each route the time of the next train, and a small pull down piece under this showing any particular differences or connections with that service.

Spend most of my time with images of yesterday (or before), but enjoy use of the Pentax K5 when possible.
