Lobby Clock in the Waldorf Astoria Hotel

 I was fascinated by the clock in the lobby of the Waldorf Astoria.  It's nine feet tall and was made for the Chicago World's fair in 1938. Around the base of it, are likenesses of several US Presidents and Queen Victoria. It's so amazing, with tiny bears and bulls, and flowers included in it's ornate filigree.

There's so many interesting things to see in the lobby of this great hotel. it was worth the $30 sandwich to have lunch there!
