|Title||Commercial Insurance Company's Building|
|Creator||Maas & Manz Chicago|
|Description||Lettering in illustration reads: "Commercial Insurance Company's Building 160 & 162 Washington St. Chicago." Text reads: "We have become so accustomed to look eastward for successful and reliable insurance companies, that we often overlook those at our own doors, which, in all the essentials of solvency, are the peers of any in the land. Among these the Commercial Insurance Company, of this city, occupies an eminent position, alike for the care with which it is managed, and the security which it affords to its insured. This company was organized in 1865 by some of our most responsible business men, and entered upon its work at a time when there was little in the immediate past or future of fire insurance to attract capital to the venture, or promise even ordinary return for the money invested."|
