See the Queen Mary Clocktower

The impressive Grade II listed stone clocktower at the Mile End Campus of Queen Mary, University of London, was erected in 1890, presented for the benefit of the people of East London by Herbert Stern Esq, in memory of his father Baron de Stern.

The tower's design incorporates marble basins for drinking fountains on north and south sides, though these are not used today, and we are told that the clock tower is surmounted by a double cupola and has wide cornices above and below clock, whatever that means.
