Chicago, Illinois

Posted by Marilee

Last September Sarah was attending a work convention that happened to be in Chicago, Illinois.  I tagged along for the trip and while Sarah was attending the convention and classes, I was out and about photographing the beautiful city.

I thought I would share some photos with you, and if you have never been, it should really be on your "bucket list".  I would love to spend more time there in the future.  Enjoy!

We stayed at the historic Palmer Hotel and this was the view from our room.  I can just imagine what that top room must be like.

What you see today was built in the 1920's, but it has history going back before the Great Chicago Fire in 1871.

The lobby elevator:

The original water tower that housed a standpipe to help water flow was first built in 1869 and it survived the Great Chicago Fire in 1871.  One of the few buildings to survive.

This train structure is on the MIT campus and the shell was built to try and keep the noise down for the dorm rooms located on the left.

Frank Lloyd Wright's home.

That great Chicago skyline.

Hope you enjoyed this quick little trip to Chicago.
