T&G Tower Clock revisited - from a closer vantage point

The T&G Tower in Hobart is an iconic Art Deco design, and whilst it has stood the test of time, the exterior of the building over the years has been falling into decay with paint peeling from the building, graffiti and even the clock tower itself wasn't working.  When I last took photographs of the T&G Building (see this blog entry here for older photos) the clock wasn't working and the bottom right hand side was smashed.  A closer vantage point some months later reveals that the clock was working and repairs have been done to the facade.
