The image depicts the Tremont Hotel, a historic landmark from the mid-1800s. It is the location from which Stephen A. Douglas and Abraham Lincoln launched their senatorial races. It also served as the headquarters for the Illinois Republican Party during the 1860 Republican National Convention. Stephen A. Douglas died there in 1861. The hotel was destroyed in the Chicago Fire of 1871.
