Church, Goodman & Donnelley, Church, Goodman & Cushing (1862)
Life Span: 1868-1871
Location: 108-110 Dearborn
Chicago Tribune, February 13, 1862
At a little past twelve o’clock this (Thursday) morning, an alarm was sounded for a fire that had already got a strong hold on the four story brick building Nos. 51, 53 and 55 La Salle street. The upper stories were all in flames before the firemen could get their position. It was not long, however, before the fire was got under partial control, and as we go to press, it is certain that no damage will come to adjoining blocks, if indeed the flames be not limited in their progress to the two upper stories.
The building is occupied by Church, Goodman & Cushing, who have a book store and Baptist depository on the lower floor, and a job printing office overhead. The building also includes the publication office of the Christian Times. The upper floor was occupied by H. Wiggins, frame-maker. There were other occupants, whose names we did not learn.
It is impossible, at the time of writing, to make any estimate pf the loss.
