FRED M. TORREY. 333 N. Michigan Avenue

The Holabird and Root "frame" is almost as good as Fred Torrey's  bas relief description of activities at  Fort Dearborn.  Deco Ornament (both here and at Holabird and Root's Board of Trade) is spectacular.

Portrayal of Native Americans varies widely in the area of the Michigan Avenue Bridge. In this case, (on the West facade of 333 North) it is the Indian who is fully civilized. (Note the carefully pressed robe.) And the slouching pioneer whose character is doubtful. (That can't be a jacket with no pants....??)
