TitleFarwell's Building
DescriptionFrom text: "Within the past year they have moved into their new building, the largest, most extensive, and best arranged for their business in the East or West. Regarding the architectural beauty of this building, it can be truthfully said to rival any building in Chicago. It is constructed of Philadelphia pressed brick, with stone trimmings, and the architects and contractors were evidently given all the latitude they desired in planning and construction."
