Carson Pirie Scott Department Store by Louis H. Sullivan, Chicago Photos

Carson Pirie Scott & Company (originally Schlesinger & Mayer Store) (1899) (12 floors) (1 South State Street) by Louis H. Sullivan. Sullivan's invention here came to be called the Chicago-style where steel supports allowed the windows to be larger & expand into a series of horizontal rectangles. There were later renovations (1904) by D.H. Burnham & Co. + Holabird & Root.
