One of my obsessions is old photography. I recently purchased a box of old kodachrome slides at a thrift store. Some of which have some great shots of Chicago. This one is looking down Michigan Ave toward Water Tower. You can see the old Allerton sign in the background and the lake. By the looks of the CTA bus, I estimate this was taken in the 50's. I have no clue how to find the original photographer, there are about 100 slides. Most of which looks like they are all around the Midwest.
