  • The City Clock-Tower
    city park and the Cathedral formed the city centre boundaries of those times The same year Concordia theatre hall burnt out and another hall for meetings and theatre plays was planned to be built close by the tower In two years time the new clock tower and Saedinenie Union Hall were ready and officially opened to visitors Firemen used the tower since high buildings were still rare and from top of it they could watch over the entire city At daytime they used coloured flags to signalize for fire and at night signals were exchanged by lit lanterns Those fire prevention activities stopped in 1898 when the fire brigade was equipped with a telephone line The clockwork was purchased from England and the prominent revolutionary Oton Ivanov fixed it on the tower Though it remains unrevealed to people s glances the clockwork itself is a real masterpiece It is quite strange that contrary to traditions the name of the producing company was not inscribed on it The whole system is fitted in a big wooden box reached by a narrow winding staircase along the stone walls The dial plate in front is used to control the pace of the clock as well as to correct it Each fourth second a system of axles and gears transmits the motion to the clock hands on the tower outside Instead of springs used in contemporary clocks this clockwork mechanism is driven by weights suspended in the middle of the tower The winding up is performed by the help of a simple crank arm of a huge drum besides the main group of gear wheels which winds the string with the hanging weights Another axle transmits the motion to the bell knocker at the tower top Till 1930 the bell had been measuring hours
