Crowds would gather in front of the building to read the latest news,
literally "hot off the press" (DN-001817).
Sometimes the crowds were job-hunters who wanted to see the " Help Wanted"
advertisements as soon as possible (DN-0051331,
DN-0009359A, DN-0085379). On a few occasions, the crowds in front
of the building were the newspaper's own workers on strike (DN-0058610, DN-0058611). The
Chicago Daily News searchlight was used to signal election results
to waiting crowds in 1912 (DN-0059875) and on many
election years thereafter (DN-0070587).
