When the map loads, it shows a wide aerial view of the city of Chicago. The city’s location on the shore of Lake Michigan is clearly visible. The Carson, Pirie, Scott and Company Building is located at the green marker, which is under the red markers.
If you zoom in, the image will bring you closer and closer to the intersection of State and Madison. At the closest level, people, buses, and cars are clearly visible, as is the rounded corner of the Carson, Pirie, Scott and Company Building.
