There are four of these wonderful clocks, one on each corner of the former Marshall Field's department store in Chicago. This huge store was so beautiful and my all time favorite place to shop when I was living in Chicago those two years in the 90's. Marshall Field's was purchased by Macy's a couple of years ago and this beautiful place is simply not the same.
If any of you watched the PBS series "Mr. Selfridge", you my be interested to know that Harry Gordon Selfridge worked for Marshall Field's from 1887 to 1904 before moving to London and creating the fabulous Selfridge's in that city.
