Description
Architect: Graham, Anderson, Probst & White


-The ground level retail arcade was renovated around 1990, and runs through the entire building with entrances on Clark, Jackson, and LaSalle.
- The main entrance is an Ionic portico, which complements the Corinthian and Doric columns of its neighboring buildings.
- A grand three-story banking hall rises from the second floor, ringed by 28 large marble columns.
- Encircling the banking hall above the pillars is a frieze by Jules Guerin titled "A Testimonial to World Trade". It depicts symbolic figures representing different nations, with the World Columbian Exposition as a background.
- On 11 October 1883, at the Grand Pacific Hotel on the site of this building, the four time zones of the continental United States were formally adopted at a meeting of railroad industry leaders.
