Golden Hour

This green and gold clock is above the front entrance to the shop Marks & Spencers, on the High Street. The clock has been there for what seems like forever, in fact so has M&S! Nothing more to say really, just wanted to share a regular Cheltenham site with you.

Also, the Golden Hour is the 60 minutes after an accident or emergency where the police, fire and ambulance services have the best chance of saving lives.

Wow! What a gorgeous clock. I wish we had more stuff like that here. Or, maybe I need to look up more when I'm out and about.

Happy Weekend, Marley!

I am thinking after eight mints. What a very ornate clock for m&s. A proper image of something unique to one's town.

Nice. And I loooove M&S! There used to be one in Brussels but it closed down a few years ago. :(

This is a beautiful clock! There's a Marks and Spencers here, but no such clock! And I didn't know about the Golden Hour!

Thanks for visiting my blog in the last couple of days!!

I've been to M&S in Singapore and loved it. Unfortunately, we don't have it in NYC. :-(

I love the English butter cookies from M&S.

Such an elegant time piece and landmark. None of the Mark & Spencer stores look this good in Budapest. :)

I like it that they use a lot of gold leaf on signs and things. Nice clock photography, Marley.

Ah! "Marks & Sparks!" When M & S closed their store in Paris, Galeries Lafayette took over the space and made that entire building their home store.

I like this clock, it has a charming look to it.

I'm a sucker for clocks & this one is lovely. Nice to see the local sites that may be everyday there but are so different from here.
