City Hall and County Courthouse
TitleCity Hall and County Courthouse
DescriptionCaption: "City Hall and Cook County Court House The administrative offices of the city of Chicago and the court-rooms and offices of Cook County, Illinois, are in this massive building which occupies the entire square bounded by Washington, Clark, La Salle and Randolph streets. It was five years in building and cost six million dollars. The heavy style of architecture gives a mistaken impression of solidity and permanency, as the structure has begun to show signs of decay. Provision for a new building has been made by the County Board, which will probably be constructed on this site."
