Postcard Message in Praise of Chicago- Beautiful Bank

The sender of this postcard, showing the Illinois Trust and Savings Bank in Chicago, wrote on the front: “Dear Carol: This is where I bank. The interior is beautiful too being finished in Mexican Onyx. Uncle Charlie.” This card was mailed in 1907.

This bank was designed by Burnham & Co. (same lead architect of the 1893 Columbian Exposition) in 1896. It has since been demolished. The Art Institute of Chicago’s website has interior views of the bank in their digital collection.
