Elmslie began drawing up plans for the Capitol Building and Loan in 1918, but construction did begin until 1922, after the firm of Purcell and Elmslie had been dissolved. By this time the Prairie School was fast losing ground to modernism, but in the widows for the Capitol Building and Loan, Elmslie still used repeated geometric forms and colors to unify the interior and exterior. This window features a circle motif, reminiscent of the windows in Frank Lloyd Wright's Avery Coonley playhouse (1912).
