From the Historic Urban Plans series, this black and white drawing shows a view of Chicago as it appeared in 1892. This perspective looks west toward the city, showing the river and lake as a bustling port for sailing vessels and steamers. The vintage poster is reproduced from a lithograph by the famed American printmaking firm, Currier and Ives. The museum's Prints and Photography Collection holds numerous lithographs including those of Currier and Ives. Originally printed in 1892, this print was first issued around the time of the World's Columbian Exposition. Dimensions: 18"x 24".
