Fortnum & Mason's clock
The partners come out on the hours.   We were lucky to be passing at just the right time.
In April 1951, the Canadian businessman W. Garfield Weston acquired the store and became its chairman following a boardroom coup In 1964, he commissioned a four-ton clock to be installed above the main entrance of the store as a tribute to its founders. Every hour, 4-foot-high (1.2 m) models of William Fortnum and Hugh Mason emerge and bow to each other, with chimes and 18th-century–style music playing in the background. Since Garfield Weston's death in 1978, the store has been run by his granddaughters, Jana Khayat and Kate Weston Hobhouse.   We did not know about the spiral staircase, picture from the web.
