DescriptionView northwest along the North Branch of the Chicago River from the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza Hotel (350 W. Mart Center Drive). The West Kinzie Street bridge spans the river in the lower foreground, and large parking lots cover the land on either side. Further upriver, in the upper part of the photograph, are the West Grand Avenue bridge and, directly behind it, the Ohio Street bridge. The Montgomery Ward Catalog and Retail Sales building (Mail Order House), and the Montgomery Ward Administration building are just visible on the upper right of the photograph.
