During the summer of "09" I had the opportunity to climb inside the City Hall clock tower. From stairs to ladders with bird poop covering everything above the bell level, the climb to the top was interesting and was one heck of a workout. Dispite dirty windows the views was just breathtaking. A recent renovation had helped reinforce the tower structure and repaired the clock and bell ringer. But with the dirty windows I was never happy the way the images came out. So I looked back to see if I could help "clean" up the images I took back then and this is the result.

It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
