  My father worked in the CB&Q offices in this building from the mid 1920's until his retirement in 1971. I visited his office a few times; long before cubicles it was an open space with numerous desks. No AC of course! I also remember the elevators, which had filigree doors and sides, and operators who controlled each one manually. He generally rode the Lake Street "L" to work from our home in Oak Park, transferring to the Garfield Park line at "Lake Street Junction." Thanks for the pictures!

  Unique style for this area downtown. Note the narrowing in the rear of the building. This was necessary because the Metropolitan West Side el tracks ran behind the building and curved here.
