Looks like it took a bit of a hammering during the war.The clock tower ended up in the dock beside a few sunken ships.

Well done.

Nice one Lazarus The 2nd it is always nice to see the original postcard.

I was to busy looking for clock towers, and of course with that one getting blown up during the war maybe the reason I never found it.

It was interesting to find out what happened to it with some old war war photo's.

It was for liners to drop of and pick up their passengers and of course a train station as well.

Looks like this could be part of the Clock Tower.

Jock1e, very interesting, it looks like they didn't use the original 'footprint' as the modern complex has only one large station building on the left as opposed to two.
