Title
The Edinburgh Festival, Floral Clock
Description
This floral clock linked the Festival with the Scottish Industries Exhibition held in Glasgow, which attracted many business men among the visitors.
Three men in dark suits stand by the side of the Floral Clock in Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh. The clock is composed of intricately planted flowers, the word 'Industries' and some of the roman numerals of the clock face are visible in this image. A group of people admire the planting in the garden and beyond the railings we can see the pedestrians on Princes Street.
