Where in the Loop is This?... 03.22.06...

It is Wednesday again, and that means it is time for this weeks "Where in the Loop is This?"

Let me know if you can identify where you would find this image and/or what the image is. No prizes, but I will reveal the answer and first correct guesser on next Wednesday.

Hints:
1) This is actually quite easily found if you know where to look, as it appears in more than one location.


Last Weeks Image:

Well, it appears that if the first week was too difficult, then last weeks was too easy. Congrats go to "trmmilwwi", who nailed it with the first comment less than three hours after I posted it.

It was the courtyard on the fourth floor of the Fine Arts Building, an amazing place to roam around and check out the galleries on Michigan Avenue. Built as a showroom for Studebaker to show off the latest in carriages and wagons, the building was converted into studios and theaters for artists and craftsman in 1898. Very little has changed in this place, which just adds to the experience, and I highly recommend a visit to the courtyard.

Hopefully this weeks challenge is between the last two, challenging but not too easy.

My two best guesses are either:

1) The ornamentation on the Carson Pirie Scott Building on State Street; or

2) A detail from those ornate streetlamps in the Loop, also on State Street.

Of course, I could be totally wrong too!

Lamps in the Union Station "Great Hall"
