Got ornament? The Chicago Stock Exchange Building by Adler & Sullivan was built in 1893-4. When the building was demolished in 1972, sections of the trading room’s stenciled decorations, molded plaster capitals, and stained glass were preserved, and the entire room was reconstructed at the Art Institute of Chicago.
