1291 : Keeping Time For The Dance Of Progress


HALLAMSHIRE COAL CLOCK, VICTORIA QUAYS, SHEFFIELD

Hallamshire Coal Supplies Ltd is long gone from Victoria Quays in Sheffield. Where once coal was unloaded from barges, now skinny lattes are sipped and amusing little chiantis are uncorked. But the clock remains. keeping time for the dance of progress.
