This is the Kaufmann's Clock, a beautiful old 2500 lb solid bronze clock that has been hanging from the Kaufmann's Department Store building, at the intersection of Smithfield and Fifth Ave since 1913. It has long stood as a get-together landmark, on several occasions even serving as a place for a couple to get married. Its strongest memory in the hearts of Pittsburghers though, is its innate attachment to the Kaufmann's Department Store that had rooted it as a prominent piece in the Christmas experience of generations of Pittsburghers; the clock would loom large overhead as people young and old came to shop in the center of the city, or even to just gawk at the elaborate window displays lining the city streets nearby, flush with mechanical trains toys of all varieties. These days, the Kaufmann Building sits empty...but the clock, and all it represents, stays firmly in place, a historic landmark celebrating a bygone era.
