Pretty, gruesome, incongruous …

… speaking of the architecture, the faces and the clock, in that order. This is Coney Street, meaning King's Street, but in some ancient Norse dialect; it is probably York's busiest shopping street. There are six or more similar faces of uncertain significance evenly situated on the intricately decorated façade of the building. The clock, with its riveted metal casing and modern numerals seems out of place here.

  1. The clock definitely sticks out like a sore thumb. It needs to be a different color and have different numeral font.
