35 E Wacker Drive Postcard--Build Your Own Chicago
Originally known as the Jeweler's Building, this 1926 skyscraper was one of the last in Chicago built in Beaux Arts style. Despite the historicist terracotta ornamentation, the building was equipped with one of the nation's largest internal parking garages, with an entirely automatic elevator system, ensuring the highest security for the jeweler tenants. The domed cupola on the 40th floor once featured a lounge and restaurant with panoramic views of the city. This card includes all pieces and instructions necessary to make a complete paper model at 1:2000 scale, approx. 3" tall. All the cards in the Build Your Own Chicago series are mailable postcards, with space on the reverse for a stamp and address and a message. Each card also includes a short but informative description of the landmark the model represents. Instructions are included in the form of multi-lingual isometric diagrams. There is also a Build Your Own New York series.
