DescriptionCaption: "Chicago's Public Library building bears the reputation of being one of the finest library structures in the world. The interior is exquisitely finished in marble, mother-of-pearl and onyx. It is situated on Michigan Avenue between Randolph and Washington streets, and commands a view of Lake Michigan. Upon its shelves are more than three hundred thousand volumes. Here the sewing girl and the society women meet on a common level and the millionaire and tramp brush elbows. The institution is maintained at an annual cost of over one hundred thousand dollars."
