Zodiac signage

The Bracken House plaque on Friday Street in the city reminds me of the Wishing Bridge in Jaffa, Israel.

The Bracken House sundial depicts Winston Churchill, a personal friend of Bernard Bracken who was the former chairman of the Financial Times which was published there until the 1980’s. Possibly some kind of  masonary symbol, including all the mystical zodiac signs, it was also the first post war building to be listed and protected from redevelopment.

Legend has it that if hold your hands on your zodiac sign, look out to sea and make a wish it will come true on the Wishing Bridge in Jaffa
