The Rae Building

This optimistic face was installed in the cornice at 23 South Wabash, remarkably, in 1871. Archi- tect for the project was Frederick Baumann. Scuptor is unknown to the author. If you have any information, please email. Maybe there is some clue in the collar. Or the curls.
The Rae building is under careful renovations as a component of the new Legacy Condominium at Millenium Park. This won't be the first FACE that Solomon Cordwell Buenz has cared for on Wabash. And hopefully, it won't be the last. Thank-you SCB.
