The stained glass windows for the Chicago Stock Exchange were executed by George Louis Healy and Louis Julian Millet. These windows were originally part of a large arrangement installed directly above the trading floor. Less than half of the original glass art from the Chicago Stock Exchange was recovered making this an exceptionally rare pair of panels.
