Perched on the sign at the Pike Street entrance to the Pike Place Market, the neon clock has been a focal point of Seattle for eight decades. According to Historylink.org, the entrance under the sign served as a "Speaker's Corner" in the 1930s, drawing anyone with anything to speak about. The clock and sign were built in 1930. A photo on Historylink.org shows that the face was yellow in the 60s.Location:
