TitleNew post office site
DescriptionCaption: "Chicago's recommended new post office site, new Union Terminal to the left, Northwestern Depot to the right. The Chicago Plan Commission has not recommended a type for the new Chicago postal structure. The above is merely a suggested type to occupy the two blocks recommended on Canal Street between the present Northwestern terminal and the Union Station now under construction, to harmonize with these depots. Building area, 205, 301 sq. ft. Adjacent street area, 390, 000 sq. ft. Sixty-two per cent of all the mail handled in Chicago passes between these two railway terminals."
