Another Milwaukee icon to see when in the city. Of course, you can see it just driving by and not have to get real close. Now Rockwell Automation, formerly Allen Bradley.

As others have mentioned, used to be the largest four faced clock in the world. It can't be missed if you're driving into town from the south. Not worth visiting, but worth noting if you're passing by.

The is an icon in Milwaukee, and the largest 4 sided clock in the U.S. I believe it used to be the largest in the world (it is larger than London's Big Ben), but somewhere they built a larger one in the past few years....More
