Description

Today (March 2018) there is a large timber grandfather clock located within the foyer of the Literary Institute, constructed in 1927, with a plaque attached to the clock.

The Memorial Clock was once set on a framework outside the building on a piece of polished granite donated by Vic Melvaine of the Uralla Granite Quarries.

It was in July 1947 that the Women's Radio Club offered a memorial clock to the Memorial Institute Committee which agreed to the offer. In November the Uralla Municipal Council agreed to supply free electricity to the clock.

The unveiling and dedication of the Memorial Clock took place on Anzac day, 25 April 1948 and the Uralla Times, 29 April described the occasion in detail. The President of Uralla Shire Council, Councillor W.J. King dedicated the clock and Mrs A. Byrne, president of the Uralla Branch of the Radio Club, unveiled it. Local electrical engineer, Mr A.V. Rutherford erected the clock.
