In downtown Victoria, B.C., There is a beautiful two-story shopping mall anchored at one end by Eaton's Department store. The store is much like Macy's or Nordstrom.

The mall has ornate round marble columns and Victorian style architecture. At the end near Eaton's hanging at the second floor level is this large clock structure constructed of brass and stained glass. It has full size clock faces on two sides and four smaller clock faces on the other two sides. It is a sight to behold.

Here are two views of the clock structure. In the second, you can see some of the mall architecture.

Yes. If you download and enlarge the first shot, you can see the names of cities above the clock faces. The four on the oppositie side have different city names.

Wow, that's not only a timepiece it's also a work of art.

Aloha for some lovely shots.

Very nice. I think it is called The Bay Centre now. Eaton went out of business a few years ago.
