  • At the end of the 1881 Heritage remains as a clock tower that goes up with a spiral staircase. It was used between 1885 and 1907, and it seems to have corrected the "ship time" which caused the madness by the voyage by dropping this time ball and correcting it to the exact time. It is not working now, but the machine can be seen in the tower.

  • This tower is located in 1881. The tower was very small and could not be occupied by too many visitors. In the past, the time ball was manually lifted daily and dropped at 1pm to enable ships at the port to see the ball descend and adjust the chronometer accordingly.
