    Are you certain this is 11th? About twenty years later, my grandfather had a store at 13th & F, and that clock was right in front of his store (unless they were on multiple corners downtown??) It is featured in some of his early print ads (I have copies if you want to see) and he eventually donated it to the National Zoo (it was still there when I was a kid, but recently learned it may not be there anymore…)
