The clock at the Pike Place Market was installed in 1927 at the entry to this historic area. The clock and sign are instantly recognizable as Seattle landmarks and were some of the first pieces of neon installed west of the Mississippi. This pig replicates, with artistic license, this landmark complete with neon sign that says “Pike Place Market Center” and scenes from the Pike Place Market.
