Lincoln Park [Finial: City Hall Relic]
Finial: Old City Hall Bldg. Relic
Lincoln Park West
Architects: Jenney and Loring
This urn-like finial survived the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, 2010.
A relic from the old 1853 City Hall and County Court House Building. They were part of addition built in 1869.
I took this image in July, 2009.
Today, August 2012, I came to find that I had photographed a treasure!
