There is one comment.

  One of the best surviving examples of the classic Chicago School window. The decreasing floor heights in the upper stories create, perhaps inadvertently, a forced-perspective effect that makes the building look taller. From some angles a Boston Store logo can still be discerned on an equipment tower on the roof..
