Chicago lakefront, 1932
Lovely aerial photograph of Chicago's lakefront, circa 1932. (Apparently hand-tinted, since Kodachrome wasn't commercially available for still photography until 1936.) I love how the cloud shadows create an imaginary, seahorse-shaped peninsula off of North Avenue Beach. The southern end of Lake Michigan is strangely devoid of peninsulas and islands, two geographic features which always stoke my imagination.
