Photographer's Note

Looking pretty small here the Sears Tower was once the tallest building in the world.

Construction commenced in August 1970 and the building reached its originally anticipated maximum height on May 3, 1973. When completed, the Sears Tower had overtaken the roof of the World Trade Center in New York City as the world's tallest building. The tower has 108 stories as counted by standard methods, though the building owners count the main roof as 109 and the mechanical penthouse roof as 110. The distance to the roof is 442 m (1,450 ft 7 in), measured from the east entrance.
In February 1982, two television antennas were added to the structure, increasing its total height to 520 m (1,705 ft).
