DescriptionView north over the Near North Side from the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza hotel (350 W. Mart Center Drive). The John Sexton Building, located at Illinois and Orleans Streets, is in the foreground at the lower right; at the time of the photograph, the building served as a warehouse and manufacturing facility, but has since been converted into condominiums. Industrial buildings including the Wallace Press Building and Kirchheimer Brothers Paper Company (417 West Ohio Street) are visible behind and to the left of the Sexton Building. The Montgomery Ward & Company Headquarters tower (now The Montgomery condominiums, 535 West Chicago Avenue/ 500 West Superior Street) stands out against the sky on the far left side of the photograph.
