TitleChamber of Commerce
DescriptionFrom text: "Chamber of Commerce--Board of Trade Is located on the corner of Washington and LaSalle streets. Its walls are built of Athens marble, and its dimensions are 93 by 181 feet. It is in the modern Italian style of architecture, and consists of a basement, half beneath the street, and used for business offices; a story above, occupied by banks, insurance and commission offices; and above this the grand hall, where the members of the Board of Trade assemble daily. The building is surmounted by a Mansard roof, pierced with oval windows, the corners ornamented with urns. The entrance consists of four handsome Corinthian columns, from which spring three arches supporting a handsome balcony, underneath which a broad flight of stairs leads to the first floor. On the whole, the structure has an imposing appearance. The building and the ground upon which it is situated cost $400, 000."
