  • Description
  • Caption: "South Water Street as it is today--a physical misfit in Chicago's scheme of development." From text: "South Water Street today is an economic waste; a burdensome charge on all the people; a drawback to Chicago's progress; obstructive to its prosperity, and a conflagration danger to the whole Loop district. South Water Street is a physical misfit. If left as it is, it must forever remain dwarfed, destroying its own usefulness.
