Time for Chicago

The three clocks of my post today clearly show that it's time for Chicago.
I photographed all three clocks, with an interval of 20 minutes, on the first day of our second visit to this fascinating city.
6:00 P.M. The most famous of the three, showed on the main picture is the iconic clock at Marshall Field's, on the corner of State Street and Washington Street.
Marshall Field was a department store in Chicago since 1853. This store was the flagship of the company. In 2005 Marshall Field became part of Macy's, Inc. (originally Federated Department Stores, Inc.)

5:20 P.M.The second photo (WS1) shows one of the clocks of C.D. Peacock, a famous jeweller from Chicago. (since 1837). You can see a peacock at the top of the clock.
This clock can be found on the corner of Monroe Street and State Street, above the entrance of Kay Jewellery store.

5:40 P.M. Finally, the third photo (WS2) shows the clock of the One North LaSalle building on the corner of Madison Street and LaSalle Street. This building dates from 1930 and was named a Chicago Landmark in 1996 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1999.
