The Photo of the Week is posted every Monday. Each photo aims to document the things I've seen, places I've been and all sorts of curious things I have encountered as I go about my daily activities. Along with the photo I will provide some background and interesting facts about the image and some technical information as well.
This clock tower is located in the business district of downtown Hartford Connecticut. To be honest, I really don't know any facts or history about the structure but thought I'd capture a photo of it while I was in the area. The tower features a numberless clock that is prominently displayed on all 4 sides and benches are at the base for people to sit end enjoy the weather on nice days. The clock tower has unusual detailing and is heavily textured. I took the photo below to highlight the detail along the side of the tower.
