Reiling, Assistant Editor.
We print . . . illustrations of new property recently purchased by the
American Medical Association. That on [the left] is a reproduction of a photograph
of the property. It is situated on the northeast corner of Dearborn Avenue
and Indiana Street, Chicago, on the north side, and quite near the business
center. The property is covered with five houses, renting from $35 to $50
each, the two on the north—to the left—are being taken down to
make room for the new building. The size of the ground is 80x100. The illustration
on [the right] is a reproduction of the architect's plans for the new building
for THE JOURNAL. It will be 40x80 feet, three stories and a high basement.
The basement will be occupied by the presses and folders, the first floor
by the bindery and mailing room, and the second by the editorial and business
offices. The front part of the third story will be occupied by the library,
and the rear by the composing room. The cost of the building complete will
be a little over $30,000.
