This Was Austria Staff Photographer W. Robert Moore Perched on a 350-foot Hill, the Clock Tower at Graz Was a Landmark to American Airmen Dating from 1571, the tower stands on Schlossberg (Castle Hill), a fortification that withstood Turks and French. Dismantled, the fort became a park to which people climbed to see the city. Our bombers based in Italy pounded Graz for more than a year. Toward the end they struck its rail yards to aid the advancing Russians.
