Detail in ink, The Rookery Building. Rooks in the masonry welcome visitors. They remind them that, at one time, City Hall was here, and home to many of their kind. Rooks are closely related to the crow and raven.

#Tbt A detail from a beer label for South Loop, now Hop Butcher for the World. The beer was named for South State Street, which used to be called Satan's Mile for its great number of saloons, brothels, gambling dens.
