Fellow blogger Jeff Wagg lives in the great city of Chicago. He is the brains behind the “College of Curiosity”. Curious is the best word to describe Jeff, if it’s new, old, different or in any way interesting, Jeff want to know about it. Not only does he want to know about it, he wants to share that knowledge with others.
I recently found a tourist style book of photographs of Chicago. I scanned some of he photographs and as a challenge to Jeff asked him how many of the places listed as “must see” were still around. Much to the delight of both of us, these places still exist in some form, except one! Now I look forward to visiting and seeing some of these places for myself.
I wasn’t sure why this was a “must see”. The building is still there today, but serves a new purpose!
I found out what I thought was a water tower on top of the building, actually lights up!
I want to go see the boats!
Still there, and I love to visit “Chinatown” no matter what the city.
I think the airport has grown somewhat since the photograph was taken. I have however flown in a biplane and it was wonderful.
One place we can no longer visit. However, I have read about the smell that visitors to the site complained about. So if one of the places has to be gone, this is the one I am fine missing.
