Livestock National Bank, Exchange Building

-A A +A
c. 1920, William L. Steele. Cunningham Dr., south of Chicago Ave.

It is the Sullivan-inspired terracotta ornamentation that draws attention to what is otherwise a nondescript three-story brick office building. There are rectangular cartouches above the cornice on the parapet; the two terracotta signs inserted into the surrounding brick walls display letters intertwined within a field of naturalistic and geometric ornament. Most of the windows have now been filled in with glass brick.
