Caption: "The Armour grain elevator is the largest in the city, and belongs to the millionaire meat packer. The owner is noted for his great wheat operations on the Board of Trade. The vast quantities of the actual product in this immense elevator have often been able to turn the market in his favor. The elevator is located on Goose Island in the Chicago River. The combined capacity of the Chicago elevator warehouses is thirty-one million bushels.
