Mantel clock with aneroid barometer, in granite case made from the granite used in the construction of Princes Bridge, Melbourne in 1888.

The clock was owned by David Munro (1844-1898), the engineer and building contractor who had the contract to build the bridge. It is probable that Munro himself had the clock made. The clock was presumably made in Melbourne, using an imported movement.
