DescriptionCaption: "[Engraved for The Standard Guide Company.] Looking north on State From Madison St. [See "Guide."]". From text: "[W]e will endeavor to do the great retail avenue of Chicago, or at least a portion of it, before the day closes. This thoroughfare... is one of the grandest commercial arteries in the world. By looking up "State Street" in the Index, you will learn that it is the longest in the city, extending as it does from North ave. to the southern limits, a distance of eighteen miles."
