Happy Hancock Halloween

I post this mainly to direct you here. A post that might have gotten lost.

Back to the photo above – of the John Hancock (SOM), 900 N. Michigan (KPF), and the beacon of the Palmolive Building (Holabird & Root).
“And though Palmolive is smallest of the three, it is the more splendid – for eternity.”

What a good-looking city! The Hancock is good. 900 North is, eh…. Palmolive is great.

Interesting too how, from Lake Shore Drive, the Drake Hotel in front of the Palmolive Building seems like a part of it; it seems like the base from which the Palmolive rises.
