Westminster Palace, London, England, contains three large Towers; one of which is the Clock Tower. ”Big Ben” is actually the nickname for the great bell of the four-faced chiming clock, which was built in 1858. Clock dials are set in an iron frame supporting 312 pieces of oval glass with a gilded surround; and a Latin inscription at the base translates: O Lord, Keep safe our Queen Victoria the First.
   The Gothic Revival Tower, roughly 16 stories high, is located at the north end of the Palace of Westminster.
