Easy? Looks like you stumped everyone, including me - somewhere in the arts precinct?

In the meantime, this one might be easier - apparently the clock was obscured behind signage until recently, and doesn't appear to work

ah yes, i forgot about this - it's here on Hindley St.

Mr Xaragmata, i'll need to think about the location of that clock. Looks like 1950's style architecture - somewhere in the Uni grounds?
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

Thanks, I will have a closer look. I think the clock building would be more 1920 or 30, and not in the Uni. Closer to the GPO.

Is it a 2 level building on Bentham Street, almost opposite the former Spire site?

Actually I take my guess back. It's nothing like what I was thinking of. Will's onto it for sure.
