Not only is the detail that went into the Wrigley and Tribune amazing, but the fact that at the time they were built no one could have really seen that detail. That was detail and craftsmanship for their own sake. Beautiful, ornate structures built because they could be. Great stuff.
Awesome pictures. I'm glad you posted them, even though they are pretty old.
