|Lauren, finding some old info|
on the Reliance Building
|The model we're planning to build|
of the Reliance, in Rhino.
For Valentine's Day, I was treated to a night at the Hotel Burnham. It's the second time I've gotten to play tourist in Chicago by staying at a hotel downtown. I had dinner at the Atwood Cafe (named for Charles Atwood, who took over the design of the Reliance Building after Root passed away) and stayed in a historical suite on the 11th floor. Here are some of the pictures I took while I was there.

(begrudgingly, Macy's) building at night.

Hale's (the building owner's) own elevator design.
