Notes
Survey number HABS SC-613
Significance: One of two street clocks in Columbia; both clocks have four faces ornamented with lions' heads and standing atop a fluted column with a Corinthian capital. The clock faces are round with roman numerals. The internal mechanisms are original. These clocks are said to have been made by Seth Thomas; the clockmaker produced five - in addition to Columbia's there are one (each) in Boston, New Orleans, and San Francisco.
