Chicago Brick of the Day: Alphabet City

We're not showcasing just one, but 26 bricks today.  These alphabet bricks are embedded in the facade at the newish office building at 405 West Superior Street.  They start with "A" at the roof, and progress down to "Z" at knee level.

The letter "Q" is unusually large, and echoed in the building's address plate as "4Q5."  It's the same style of Q used in the logo of the Quarasan company, an education company which is a tenant in the building, but the building's official name is still 405 West Superior.
