Grain Exchange Building

Edward Townsend Mix
1879




The Grain Exchange Building was also known as the Mackie Building, or the Chamber of Commerce Building (the latter name is engraved at the bottom of the central tower). It provided the offices for those trading in commodities and once housed the world's largest grain exchange with a large trading room rising through three floors. A square bell tower with a copper cupola is set above the six-story office block.
Alexander Mitchell built both this and the neighboring Mitchell Building--center image, far right. Ornamental stonework decorates the facade and entrance.
