New Zealand facts & history in brief               New Zealand Map

Port Chalmers

is 14 km from Dunedin and the deep water container port for the city with the population of about 5000.
Commercial fishing, ship building, marine engineering and other light industry is situated in the town. Near the port on a rise is a building housing one of the few remaining marine clocks it does have a proper name, but although I tried a can't find any reference to it.
Any way there's a large pole at the top of the building and a large ball gets pulled up to the cross bar and at exactly 12 pm. Midday the ball gets drop to the bottom, and ships used to adjust their clock to it.
The photo in this page showing the tower with the ball at the bottom.
