Brighton Clock Tower

Brighton Clock Tower, c1905. Postcard.

A competition was held in 1881 to design a clock tower for Brighton, which was won by Henry Branch and Thomas Simpson . However, the cost of around £1000 to £1500 dissuaded the council from building it.

A clock tower was eventually built in the proposed location in 1888 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. It was funded by James Willing, a local advertising contractor, who gifted £2000 for its construction.
