The top eight universities in Australia are called sandstone universities.. UWA is one of them. Winthrop Hall above, completed in 1932, has many charming features, one of which is the 'reflection pool', it was a bit dull on the day we were there but when the sun shines the reflections are amazing.. not so happy with this one but you can see the possibilities oui! If you pull the shot above in closer you can see the glazed terracotta gryphon frieze that circles the building just under the roof eaves..
The Clock Tower is 150ft at it's tallest point..the clock itself has been upgraded four times since it was first installed, the last being in 1964 when it was replaced by an electric master clock. Personally the feature I find most charming is the small balcony on the clock tower.. must be the incorrigible romantic in me :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe...p.s. the link to Winthrop Hall is excellent for any university buffs out there!
