140:365 The Spirit of Electricity

is the name of this Art Deco sculpture. It is on the facade of the Commonwealth Edison Power Station on Dearborn (between Randolph and Washington). The power station itself is a work of art - designed by Holabird and Root and completed in 1931. The sculpture was created by Sylvia Shaw Judson.

I've been finding myself looking at the facades of buildings lately - this one has always intrigued me, and anything that smacks of Art Deco I usually love.
