DescriptionView looking across North Michigan Avenue towards the high-rise buildings located on the west side of the street south of the intersection with East Superior Street. The windows of the street-level shops of the 700 North Michigan Avenue building (originally Judah Building) are visible near the center of the photograph. The House of Kahn Estate Jewelers is one of these shops. This building, and the adjacent building to the right, the Central Life Building (North Central Life Insurance Building, 720 North Michigan Avenue), were among those demolished to make way for Chicago Place. Brubaker's caption on the original slide mount reads ""Tree-lined avenue.""
