Memorial: Fortnum & Mason
Erection date: 1964
From the shop's website:
1964 saw a new landmark added to the front of the store - the famous Fortnum's clock, with bells from the same foundry as Big Ben. Every fifteen minutes a selection of airs is played on eighteen bells, and once an hour Messrs F&M themselves appear to check that standards are being upkept.
We are sceptical that the two bewigged figures in 18th century servants' attire were ever intended to represent Mssrs Fortnum and Mason themselves but who are we to gainsay their own website? Even though it does use the non-existent word "upkept".
