DescriptionView looking northeast from a parking lot towards West Hubbard Street, with North Wells Street on the far left side of the photograph. The grey-painted building on the left is 431 North Wells Street; next to it on the right is 154 West Hubbard Street, home to the store "workbench" at the time of the photograph. Further to the right, the side facade of 505 North LaSalle, and the front of the Boylston building (116-122 West Illinois Street) are visible. The John Hancock Center rises behind the Boylston Building. The site of the parking lot in the foreground is now occupied by high-rise condominium complex with retail space and a parking garage. Brubaker's caption on the original slide mount reads "Vacant block from Kinzie to Hubbard, Wells to LaSalle".
