Gunnedah Town Hall Memorial Clock Tower and Arch

Description

Gunnedah's Town Hall was opened on 25 March 1926. At the time, the archway leading into the front doors was still under construction and was intended to be dedicated as a Soldiers' Memorial Arch. The Memorial Clock Tower was added later and dedicated on 11 August 1937. There are two brass plaques dedicating the clock tower, one with a timber background and an inscription, and the other with an Australian Imperial Force emblem and inscription.
