The iconic old town clock in historic downtown Halifax was constructed in 1803, at the request of Prince Edward, Duke of Kent.
The clock's mechanism was crafted and manufactured by the House of Vulliamy - renowned royal clock makers in London, Great Britain.
The clock is now under the management of Parks Canada as it was designated a National Historic Site along with the nearby Citadel in 1951. The clock is wound twice every week by Parks Canada staff.
