I like looking at this clock whenever I’m walking around the downtown mall in Riverside. I’m not sure why, because it is somewhat ornate and I don’t generally like ornate objects. It does seem to fit with the architecture of many of the buildings on the mall, a number of which were built in the 1900s and early twentieth century.

The building in the background across the street is The Mission Inn, which has a completely different appearance after dark this time of year (see Festival of Lights).
