World’s Largest Analog Clock

So they say in Pittsburgh. This clock on the old Duquesne Brewery may or may not be the world’s largest, but it’s huge (compare it to the houses in the foreground). From across the Mon on the Boulevard of the Allies, it’s the most obvious thing on the South Side. [Update: It should be noted that, since this article was written, two larger clocks have been built: the largest in Mecca, and a very large one somewhere in Turkey. This is still the largest clock in the Americas, the Western Hemisphere, the English-speaking world, and a number of other categories one could think of.]
