The Singer Sewing Machine Factory clock, the world's largest four faced clock that stood 226ft high with a 26ft-wide clock face (5 feet larger than Big Ben) with 13 foot ‘Singer’ signs above each clock face it became symbolic of the global importance of a plant that would weave itself into the very fabric of life in the town on the outskirts of Glasgow. First illuminated in 1907 it lit up the night's sky which was visible at a distance of up to six miles, for 79 years it was used by locals to keep time prior to it being stopped by the push of a button from Provost F. Downie of Clydebank on Friday, March 15, 1963.
