DescriptionFrom text: "The LaSalle Club is a political and social organization. All the leading Republican politicians belong to it, and it is the centre of Republican activity in Chicago. Organized in 1884 early in 1888 it took possession of the fine building it now occupies, at 252 West Monroe Street, formerly the residence of C. C. Holton, Esq. The house is of marble, three stories and a basement... In the basement are the lunch room, the café, cigar stand, gymnasium, and a magnificent bowling alley, containing five alleys and two shuffle boards. On the first story are the halls, two large parlors, the reading room and the office, and in the addition the billiard room, with twelve tables. The second story contains eighteen card rooms, and a superb assembly room in the addition. The third story is as yet unfinished."
