DescriptionView looking northeast, showing a nineteenth-century hotel and an apartment building on West Ohio Street at the northwest corner of North Dearborn Street. The sides of the buildings have been painted with advertisements for nearby businesses. There is a street-level parking lot in the foreground. The upper part of Water Tower Place and the John Hancock Center are visible behind them. On the right of the image, the rear of the Hotel Cass (now Holiday Inn Express Magnificent Mile Hotel Cass) is visible.
