Then... the pharmacy and its clock has since relocated from High Street
For nearly two centuries the people of Wrexham used a clock on the High Street to keep time.
The original was located above Rowlands' pharmacy when it first moved on to the main street in 1810 - nearly 30 years before the adjacent Wrexham Butchers' Market was built in 1848.
A generation ago, the clock gained notoriety and became more of a feature of High Street than a reliable timepiece with its two faces confusing passers-by with differing times.
But times change, and with Rowlands' relocation to St Georges Crescent, the clock was placed in storage 12 years ago.
Now it has been restored and goes back in service (Wednesday) above the pharmacy to mark its 200th anniversary celebrations.
This particular clock (pictured) is nearly 60 years old and is the fourth replacement of the original.
