View of the demolition of the Wellington Hotel at South Wabash Avenue and East Jackson Boulevard in the Loop community area of Chicago, Illinois. Elevated tracks are visible in the foreground, and the Chicago Business College is visible in the background. Before its demolition, the hotel's furnishings and fixtures were auctioned off. It was originally known as the Matteson Hotel, opened in 1873, and had housed millionaires, famous actors and actresses, and political leaders. It was owned by A. S. Gage, who ran a dry goods business.
