Atkinson's Clocktower, Kota Kinabalu, 2004.
One of the most enduring landmarks in KK, which has stood prominently on the bluff along signal Hill Road, is the KK's clock tower. It was built in 1902 as a memorial to Francis George Atkinson, the popular first District Officer of Kota Kinabalu. This memorial has distinction of being the oldest standing structure in the whole of Sabah that survived the air raids and blitz of World War II.
