The 'Memory Lane' photo on page 13 of today's YEP shows the actor Valentine Dyall near the Grand Theatre in a photo dated April 10 1972. The Wrens Hotel is in the background and it has a large clock abutting from it. I'm fairly sure there is no clock now at The Wrens so I wonder if anyone knows when it was removed?

Well well - if it has gone I'd never noticed - but I certainly remember it well.

The 1999 picture on Leodis shows the clock gone and a sign in its place.

But the sign's not there now I don't think.
