The Tribune Tower at night, in tones of grey with yellow light shining from windows and infusing the top of the building. The Tribune looms over is neighbors in exaggerated scale. Beams of light shoot into the sky creating an arch over the building. "Golden Glow/Floodlighting Projectors/Electric Service Supplies Company" is printed in a black panel below the image.
