The Floral Clock, situated opposite the Palmerston North Post Office on the Main Street corner, was a gift from the Directors of the Manawatu Evening Standard, to commemorate the Palmerston North's Centenary. The newspaper paid $3,210 for the Floral Clock and a further $500 towards its installation. It was eventually removed due to continued vandalism. Published in the Manawatu Standard 21 December 1971.
