The Clock Tower at the western end of Dover seafront's esplanade. Granville Docks are to the right and the Prince of Wales Pier is to the left.

The right-hand low building can be seen on the extreme left of the King Charles II Walk image.

According to the Illustrated London News of July 22,1893, the Clock Tower wasn't always in this location.

An article titled, "The new Harbour works at Dover" describes the proposals for constructing the Prince of Wales Pier, extending the Admiralty Pier, and 'moving' the Granville Clock Tower:

The scheme of the Dover Harbour Board, for the accommodation of commercial shipping east of the Admiralty Pier, is being carried into execution by Messrs. Coode, Son, and Matthews, engineers, successors to the late Sir John Coode, by whom the works were designed. There will be a new pier, starting from an open iron viaduct. 1260 ft. long, forming an agreeable marine promenade, which will be approached from the esplanade near the Granville Clock-tower. This involves the removal and rebuilding of the clock-tower.
