Project description

Because of the potential damage and danger should wartime conflict cause it to fall, the GPO clock tower was dismantled in 1942. In 1964 A W Edwards contracted to re-erect the tower using the original stones and other fabric, which had been stored by the GPO since the World War II. In 1988 A W Edwards was also contracted for the restoration of the GPO façade, a demanding and painstaking heritage restoration largely in stone.
