Here are a couple clocks that I encountered during my trip to Canada last week:
Ottowa Peace Tower in the Parlament Building
Niagara Falls FLoral Clock. Hands are about 10 feet in diameter.
Orgin of the floral clock
Nice clocks Matt, the peace tower sounds really loud when you are high up in the tower.I once heard it when i was up there on a school trip.
Thanks for sharing.
Fascinating information about the Peace clock movement.
What historical event does it memorialize?
Also in regard to the floral clock. I take it it doesn't tell time? From what vantage point can one see the dial full-on?
Great Photos! thanks,
I believe it is called the Peace tower, in honour of the soldier,s lives lost in all wars, and hoping for peace now for all.
I love the floral clocks. Jessica, they do indeed tell the time. I had seen the one at Niagra Falls many years ago. There used to be one at the entrance to Greenfield Village. Unfortunately that has been removed.
Great pictures, Thanks for posting them.

Here is an update to an old post. I got to see this clock in person this past weekend and the door to the equipment room was open, allowing some pictures that I hope display OK here. The clock was originally built in 1950 and each year a different floral arrangement is designed. It is spectacular to see in person.
Thanks Roger for posting those pictures. Very interesting floral arrangements.
