Ancient Times

One in my series on clocks – please click on image for a larger view

This clock is on the plain, white-washed exterior wall of The Holy Spirit Church (Puhavaimu Kirik) in Tallinn Estonia.  Designed by Christian Ackermann, a sculptor and carver who worked in Tallinn from about 1672 until his death in 1710. It is said to be the oldest clock (1684) in Tallinn.  The church itself was built in the 13th C.
