DescriptionView looking northeast from the west bank of the South Branch of the Chicago River, south of West Polk Street. On the left is the red brick 310 West Polk Building. Originally built as the Marshall Field River Warehouse, it was occupied by the Cadaco game company at the time of the photograph. The building was demolished in the mid-1990s to make way for the new Central Post Office. The Willis Tower (originally Sears Tower) is visible to its right.
