Panel B would be first viewed obliquely from the left. From this angle, the most dominant elements were the rows of chimney pots on the buildings in Burrows Place. It was hoped that viewers would find the positions within the Gallery, either by chance or purpose, to superimpose the pots in the panel with those on the buildings.
The clock face on the Exchange building came into view as viewers moved to a position in front of the panel, and that image could be superimposed from three different locations in the Gallery. The clock face appeared to float across the panel, playfully suggesting that time flies, except that fortunately the clock had stopped at 1:30, making it possible to include the entire clock face and its arms in the panel.
Horizontal breaks in the Museum’s slate cladding were dominant when this panel was viewed from the right, and the vertical lines of the Evening Post building were eased in to draw the eye towards the centre of the panel.
This panel is colourless, and used sandblasting, sand carving and kiln polishing to both faces of the glass to produce the imagery. The frame was also clear with sandblasted L-shaped markings to imply a three dimensional square dentil.
