When completed in 1887, the monumental clock tower was Sydney's tallest structure. It wasnt eclipsed until 1939 when the mast of AWA was erected.
In fear of being a Japanese bombing target, the tower was dismantled in 1942 and rebuilt in 1964 in time for Anzac Day celebrations.
James Barnet's largest work, it measures 107m in length.
The top of the tower once had an observation platform with views of the growing metropolis. The platform was 56m above ground and accessed by spiral staircase.
The building is adorned with panels which depict 'Literature and the Press', 'Telegraph', 'Agriculture', 'Commerce and Mining', 'Science', 'Banking and the Post Office', 'Art', the 'Professions' and 'Pastoral Pursuits'.
