THE PRIMETIME CLOCK

THE PRIMETIME CLOCK

While photographing this clock on Washington Street in Cork a lady asked me what I was photographing [I think that she was concerned that she would appear in my photographs] and when I told here that I was photographing the clock she said that she walked along the street at least four times a day she had never noticed the clock before.

I have never been able to determine if the configuration of this clock was intentional but as it would appear that it is not being maintained I am beginning to believe that it has ended up in its current condition more by accident than by design.

Initially I guessed that the clock was associated with Prime Time Clothing but now I am certain because Primetime is on the clock dial. Could it be that the business is named after the clock?
Primetime Clothing is located at no 8 and 9 Washington Street, Cork and was established in September 1992. “Back then it started off providing funky clothes to the budding Hip Hop and Rave scene. Throughout the years it has evolved with Cork’s youth culture and has remained the city’s largest and most popular independent retailer. Primetime has always been proud of Cork’s alternative culture and from the start has involved itself with the music scene by promoting and sponsoring many club nights.”
