Caption: "Dearborn Street, the "Sixth Avenue" of Chicago, is one of the city's leading retail business thoroughfares. Here are banks, hotels and cafes in confusing array. It is also noted as a street of outfitters, haberdashers and stores of that type. Finer or handsomer business structures are not to be found on this continent. At one end is Polk Street Depot; at the other, the Chicago River. Further to the north the street becomes Dearborn Avenue, a popular residential street ending at Lincoln Park." View is looking north from present-day Congress Parkway.
