We met Josh and Val at their hotel. Josh is Marcia’s second cousin on the Campbell-Fenwick side of the family. We missed them in Budapest because we had left for Vienna. Josh and Val arrived in Vienna the day we departed for Saltzberg. However, we overlapped for a lunch get together.
Before we met Josh and Val for lunch we headed to the Anchor Clock to see the parade of figures rotate on the hour. The Anchor Clock is set in an elevated bridge between between two buildings owned by the Anker Insurance Co. It was built between 1911 and 1914. The Anchor Clock was created in the Art Nouveau style by painter and sculptor, Franz von Matsch.
We arrived about 10 minutes before noon and a small crowd had already gathered. The girls were unsuccessful in their efforts to practice patience. Noon came and went without seeing any action on the clock. At 12:05, people were looking at their watches and wondering. In another couple of minutes the clock finally started.
