The "cage" around the New Zealand Insurance Company clock was removed by workmen this morning, and the clock, which had been shrouded for a fortnight while repair and overhaul work' was in hand, revealed a bright and shiny face to people walking down Queen Street.

- Work on the northern side of the > clock has not yet been completed. ,-vThe/glass and the outer rim of the face are in position, but the face . centre and the hands have not yet been replaced. This work will be carried out on Monday.'

As the clock is an electrical one, and therefore does not have the "works" of a mechanical instrument, more than half a dozen men can get inside it at the same time, and the cage is not necessary to complete the restoration. All the clocks within the building are synchonised with the outside clock, being controlled from the same master instrument.
