The clock in the lobby of the Waldorf Astoria was created for the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. Nine feet tall, the clock weighs two tons. Around the base of the clock are likenesses of Cleveland, Harrison, Washington, Grant, Lincoln, Franklin, Jackson and Queen Victoria. Every quarter hour, the clock sounds the Westminster Chimes.
