Derelict Clock

Sometimes it pays to just point your car wherever the whim takes you. I found this old industrial park, I didn't know existed. What a wonderful clock tower this is! The clock says "Central MFG District." It makes me think of that old song, "My Grandfather's Clock," I learned as a kid:

But it stopped short
Never to go again,
When the old man died.
Ninety years without slumbering,
Tick, tock, tick, tock,
His life seconds numbering,
Tick, tock, tick, tock,
It stopped short
Never to go again,
When the old man died.

Is't that the old Warsawsky building off Cermak?
