You’re so two faced!

Coming off the Ponte Vecchio, heading towards tourist central, you’ll see these back to back clock faces on the right-hand side of Via Por S. Maria.

I’ve looked at them a few times, they always show the same time. I’ve deduced that they aren’t really coping with their assigned task. (And, yes, we all know they’re right twice a day, but still.)

So, side one:

P1120237

And side two:

P1120236

Perhaps this more ancient form of time keeping, to be found on the Ponte Vecchio, is more reliable. Well, at least when it’s day time and sunny.

    Love the sundial on the Ponte Vecchio! Wish I could make out the crest underneath….crossed keys perhaps.

  5. I just love the ancient satellite dish in the bottom photo Yvonne. Maybe they watched programmes such as the Flintstones ! 😉 ❤
