    Caption: "Michigan Avenue, showing the Auditorium[.] Michigan Avenue lies along the lake front and is a favorite driveway. No obstructing buildings lie between it and the lake and the cool breezes make it a most inviting thoroughfare on a warm day. The Auditorium Building, one of the largest in the whole country, covering an area of sixty-two thousand feet, is located between Congress Street and Wabash Avenue.

The original Auditorium Building, in the middle distance, was designed by the firm of Adler and Sullivan. less
