Escasany House in Monserrat, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Often times, a charming building will whisper hints of its illustrious history while suffering the indignities of its current tenants. Such is the case with Casa Escasany. Above the door is the date July 20, 1892. This is when Escasany House was established. The company grew into the most important and extensive jewelry retailer in Argentina. For decades, this clock played the Westminster Chimes on the quarter-hour. After the business closed in 1978, the building was converted into offices. On the ground floor is a Burger King … a far fall from its former glory.
