Caption: "This is another of the mammoth department stores of Chicago; universally known as "The Big Store." Almost every commodity of commerce ranging from soap to diamonds is sold over the counters of this immense business institution. It requires a corps of nearly two thousand employees to attend to the wants of customers. Siegel, Cooper & Company have stores also in New York and Boston." Building was designed by William Le Baron Jenney.
