Chicago Federal Building

This Beaux-Arts style grand dame was designed by Henry Ives Cobb.and constructed in Chicago between 1898 and 1905. The building's skeleton was steel frame and its exterior was granite, shipped in from Maine. The roof was clad in low porosity ceramic tile and the stunning dome shone brightly in downtown Chicago due to its gilt glass tile. The cross-shaped structure had four wings which met at a central rotunda. Marble from Tennessee, Vermont, Maine and Italy was used throughout the interior of the building. It was beautiful inside and out. Sadly, the building was demolished in 1965 and the Kluczynski Federal Building was erected in its place.
