Wordless Wednesday - Sullivan Center on State Street (formerly Carson Pirie Scott building)

They don't make them like that anymore. Those were the good old days.

But they are at least getting away from having nothing but straight lines.

I love this entryway! I pass by it so many times when I'm in the Loop. Thanks for the pics. It definitely does look better monochromatic; it makes one pay even more attention to the intricate detail!

Gorgeous! CPS always reminds me of my grandmother; we lived in Peoria at the time, and she would shop there for everything!

So agreeing with you!



Kenny, that's exactly why I took these pics in black and white!



I secretly still refer to it as the Carson Pirie Scott building instead of the Sullivan Center.

In time, a Target will be opening up in the building and it will finally get used again instead of being vacant like it has been.


All of your feedback is greatly appreciated!

It's beautiful how intricate it is. Is it cast or carved?

Robert Guthrie said...

Love the photos. Went to Northwestern and love and miss Chicago architecture. Thanks for these!

Dean Grey said...


I believe the metalwork was made from casts that were based on Louis Sullivan's drawings/designs.



You are quite welcome, sir!


Thanks to both of you gentlemen for stopping by!

These are stunning photographs! I'm tempted to print these out and put them in my lookbook!

The details look even better in person, Brody.

So glad you like them!
