A postcard showing an old view of the Columbo Clock Tower Lighthouse on the West coast of Sri Lanka.
The tower was first established as a clock tower in 1860; the
navigational light was moved to the tower by 1865. The original clock
(made by the same manufacturer as "Big Ben") was replaced in 1913. The
light was eventually blocked by tall buildings and was replaced by the
new Colombo Lighthouse at Galbokka Point.
Thank you Ravindra for this interesting card.
