40-Story Tower -- volume

Harris Armstrong's axonometric drawing showing the volume of the entire structure, the new forty story tower in the center as well as the existing renovated structures to the north and the south. The caption explains that the building costs were estimated based upon the overall volume (or "cubage") of the structure.

Drawing from Saint Louis Globe-Democrat article published Sunday 31 May 1931.
