Blue time but not the blue hour


Astronomical clock on the front of Bracken House,  London,  January 2017

This gilt metal and enamel sundial, with Roman numerals, months of the year and signs of the zodiac, graces the former offices of the Financial Times. If you look closely at the sunburst in the centre, you may recognise the face?

The building is Bracken House, named after Bernard Bracken, the former chairman of the Financial Times. The face in the centre of the giant clock is Winston Churchill, a personal friend of Bernard Bracken.
