Floral Clock

In the 1950s there was a fashion for public clocks, copying American examples.  There were 2 other clocks in New Zealand.  Mr Hurst was a member of Napier's Thirty Thousand Club, an organisation whose goal it was to advance the welfare of Napier.  Hurst was also a photographer and was chairman of the council's town planning committee.
