Day 278 – Central Hall Clock Tower

October 5, 2009

I got to go in the clock tower of Central Hall today! What a cool place! The webcams up there had smudges on the lenses, so I volunteered to go up to clean them for ITS. The journey up the various ladders and the rough hand-hewn stairs is a long one, but definitely worth it. The view is amazing from the platform at the top. I took my camera with me (with only one lens, unfortunately). There are some very neat rooms and spaces up in the clock tower. Here are a few photos:

Plumb line to tell if Central Hall is leaning (Don’t worry, it isn’t!)
