Photograph shows an interior view of the Clock Tower in Winnipeg's second City Hall (1886-1962). Caption (on verso): 1, 2, 3, 4 are members of an incomplete truss all in the N-S plane. 7, 8, & 9 are members of another truss in the E-W plane.

Tension rod 5 is a member of N-S truss and seems to serve no other purpose than to pull upper and lower chord together.
