TRAIN STATION CLOCK | Old Portuguese Stuff

TRAIN STATION CLOCK

Pinhão Train Station.

All of Portugal’s train stations were, at a time, designed in the same style with the same materials, and few regional variations. Tiles were used profusely which depicted local scenes, monuments, landscapes. A Portuguese train station was easily identified as a building type.

We don’t know if this wonderful clock was as ubiquitous as the painted tiles on the walls, but its design has both a modern dial and a beaux-arts body. This softness of style, both traditional and functionalist, is not unlike the mix which makes most old Portuguese stuff.
