I went back to Pershing High to see what the clock on that building looks like – and it’s very nice.
Does Denby have one too ? Are these on all the public high school designs from this era ? That is a cool attribute to the buildings, and also quite practical.
I guess if you designed this clock today you would have to have a giant terracotta cell phone up there to get people to even look up at it. Everybody these days are a bunch of shoe gazers – always staring at their precious little mobile devices. (‘cept a brave few who avoid those type of relationships altogether.)
