For decades, the Chicago Daily News was a strong and prosperous institution and, for a while, claimed the highest daily circulation of any newspaper in the city.   Besides the daily newspaper, the Chicago Daily News company also published a substantial annual Chicago Daily News Almanac and Year-Book from 1885 to 1938 (DN-0004584).   In 1928-29, the Chicago Daily News had a larger building constructed at 400 West Madison, on the west bank of the Chicago River (DN-0086664, DN-0088940, DN-0088973).  Many images show stages of this construction (DN-0084063, DN-0086671, DN-0086968, DN-0086970).  And of course the dedication ceremony for the completion of the building (DN-0089314) was broadcast on WMAQ radio (DN-0088987).
