Exterior view of the Inland Steel building at 30 West Monroe Street in Chicago, Illinois, designed by architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, March 24, 1958. Angled view on Monroe Street facade from the southwest, including Monroe and Dearborn Streets, showing the stainless-steel-and-glass office tower next to the taller, windowless service core, in a context of older, traditional high-rise buildings (including the neighboring Majestic building).
