Chicago Daily Photo

One block and a 100 years apart.....


Today I was struck by the contrast between two of the city's most iconic buildings. The strong structural lines of the John Hancock Center (1969) stand in crisp contrast to the delicate Gothic style of the Chicago Water Tower (1869). 100 years and seemingly millions of miles apart, the two structures are examples of the diversity and differences you find living side by side in the city.
