Holabird & Roche designed this art-deco skyscraper which towers dramatically over the end of LaSalle Street. At 609 feet it was the tallest building in Chicago when completed in 1930 and featured a popular glass observation deck. A silver statue of the goddess Ceres holding a sheaf of wheat and sack of corn keeps watch over the busy commodity traders below. This card includes all pieces and instructions necessary to make a complete paper model at 1:2500 scale, approx. 2.75" 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.
