TitleMontgomery Ward & Company Headquarters from North Kingsbury Street
CreatorYamasaki, Minoru, 1912-1986
DescriptionView looking northwest along North Kingsbury Street from underneath the Ohio-Ontario Street bridge, towards the Montgomery Ward & Company headquarters (now The Montgomery condominiums, 535 West Chicago Avenue/ 500 West Superior Street). The warehouse in front of it with the word "Carron" on the south wall is now the Park Kingsbury Lofts (660 North Kingsbury Street). Part of the warehouse at 520 West Huron is visible behind it to the right. Further to the left, the top part of 520 West Erie is just visible below the rooftop water tower painted with an "Early Times" whiskey advertisement. Old unused railroad tracks are visible on the right side of the image, and signals for a level crossing stand at the intersection with West Ontario Street.
