DescriptionView to east along East Ohio Street from the intersection with North Wabash Avenue. On the north side of Ohio Street between Wabash Avenue and Rush Street, there is a parking lot with a large billboard celebrating the Bicentennial. The office and commercial building in the center of the image stood at 100 East Ohio Street. It previously housed the GT (Gee Tee) Restaurant, and later the Corner House Restaurant on its ground floor. This space was occupied by Olson Rug at the time of the photograph. The 625 North Michigan building rises behind it. The Croydon Hotel (now The James Hotel) at the southwest corner of East Ontario and North Rush Streets, and the St. Clair hotel (formerly at 162 East Ohio Street) are at the extreme left and extreme right of the image.
