The construction of the Grand Rapid's City Hall Clock Tower began with the laying of the cornerstone on September 9, 1885. It was later dedicated on September 26, 1888. This photograph likely documents the removal of the clock face, and the razing of the clock tower in 1969. Today, the clock can be seen at the Grand Rapids Public Museum.
