“To Rome its milk-giving she-wolf, to crumbling Athens its Pallas Athene. The goddess of Chicago is Ceres, deity of grain, harvest, plenty. Last week a glittering aluminum Ceres took her place on the city’s skyline, poising her twinkling magnificence on top of Chicago’s tallest office pylon, the new 44-story, 609 ft. Board of Trade building.”
