The Queens Hall can be seen on the left background.
The clock tower on the Old Town Hall is supported
by eight identical Atlas figures, two on each corner.
The figures have naked torsos, their lower body and legs
have been replaced by a large scroll-like feature,
their arms reach up over their heads to support the bell tower.
