DescriptionFrom text: "The Federal Building, at Clark, Adams, Dearborn, and Jackson, is a massive eight-story structure, in Roman Corinthian style, of granite, surmounted by a majestic dome 297 feet high; it contains the principal Federal offices, including the Post Office, the second largest in the U. S., which does an annual business of almost $62, 000, 000, approximately one-seventh of the gross yearly business of the entire Post Office Department of the United States. A view of the great central rotunda is highly impressive."
