  Marshall Field Building Clock

The Marshall Field's Building is home to one of the world's most famous and innovative department stores and Chicago's most famous store, Marshall Field's. It is a 13 story building completed in 1914 by Burnham & Co. The building is full of beautiful architecture inside and out, including fountains and mosaics. It was named a National Historic Monument in 1978.

A popular feature of the exterior are the clocks on the State St. corners of the building. They are made of steel and full of very elaborate details.

See my shopping tips for details on the actual Marshall Field's store.
