Speaking of pieces of the Rookery Building for sale--in looking for info regarding the elevator transom for sale at Urban Remains, I came across the news that the Leslie Hindman auctioneers is selling the Adams Street staircase from the northeast corner of the famed Rookery Building as a private sale.
As stated at the auction house's website: "The six flights of the original staircase will be sold individually by flight and are comprised of cast iron and marble elements including: balustrades, baseboards, beam covers, columns, column covers, fascias, handrails, landing beams, landing tees, marble slabs, marble walls, newel posts, risers, stringers, treads and wainscoting. The stairway was carefully dismantled, tagged, numbered and removed during the renovation and restoration of the Rookery in March of 1990, over 100 years after the building was erected by the Chicago architectural team of Burnham and Root. Following this grand-scale restoration process, the building’s owner, L. Thomas Baldwin III, presented the stairway as a gift to the University Museum at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. The sale of the staircase will benefit the University Museum."
At this rate, will anything be left at the Rookery? Read more here.
