The Lobby


The lobby of the Luhrs Tower is quite small compared to most modern skyscrapers.  There are two elevators and a marble staircase on one side.  The other side opens to an arcade for businesses that served the people working in the tower, like newspaper and snack shops.


I loved the elaborate letter box in between the two elevator doors.


Above the elevator door is a dial to let you know where the elevator car was located.


And, lighting the lobby was this beautiful light fixture.
What a grand old building.
