Ikoma Building

This stone-built building was completed in 1930 when art deco was in its heyday around the time of the Paris Exposition. It was originally a watchmaker’s, which accounts for the clock tower on its roof. The bay windows on its 3rd, 4th and 5th floors and circular window on the 2nd floor were designed to imitate a grandfather clock, while seven eagles on each of the windows on the 2nd floor look down on the surrounding area.
