Photographer's Note

The Clock tower at the northern entrance to Jaffa is one of THE symbols of Jaffa and dates back to start of the previous century. Corner stone was laid on 1900 for the celebration of Abdul Hamid the second's 25th year of the rule as Turkish Sultan and by 1906 the tower was erected and the clock ticking. Surrounding this clock tower (and accompanying square) were many of the Turkish goverment offices as well as cultural centers.
Today the square is a tourist attraction while the clock still keep ticking!
