The First Great Marshall Field’s Clock In Chicago Illinois Pictured On An Acrylic Fridge Magnet
The picture on this attractive acrylic fridge magnet, from the catalogues of World Wide Gifts, shows the First Great Clock at the Marshall Field’s Building in Chicago. This clock was a replacement for the original which was installed in 1897 and was itself installed in 1907. The clock is operated from a timepiece inside the building and automatically checked and corrected twice a day. The clock has a large face measuring forty six inches across; the hour hand is twenty and a half inches long and the minute hand is twenty seven inches long. Its size and beauty are both equally memorable.
Shopping In The City Of Chicago Illinois
The Marshall Field’s store was once a mainstay of Chicago shopping. Whilst the building remains it is now the Macy’s flagship store in the city. There are many shopping opportunities in the city of Chicago especially along the Magnificent Mile on Michigan Avenue. Stores along the mile include Abercrombie and Fitch, Banana Republic, and Giorgio Armani. This shopping area is particularly good to visit during the Holiday Season when there is a lights festival featuring street sales, festive music, and entertainment. Whatever time of year people shop in Chicago there is plenty of variety and quality. Representative of the shopping environment is this picture of the First Great Clock at Marshall Field’s Building.
