The St. Charles Air Line Bridge is a Strauss Trunnion bascule bridge which spans the Chicago River in Chicago, Illinois. Built as part of the St. Charles Air Line Railroad by the American Bridge Company in 1919, the bridge originally had a span of 260 feet (79 m). This bridge held the world record for longest bascule-type span until 1930, when it was shortened to 220 feet (67 m) during a relocation as a result of straightening the river channel. The chief design engineer of the original bridge was Leonard O. Hopkins.

Abe and Barney Balaban, together with Sam and Morris Katz—founders of the Balaban and Katz theater chain, built the Chicago Theatre in 1921 as one of a large chain of opulent motion picture houses.[6] The theater would become the flagship for 28 theaters in the city and over 100 others in the Midwestern United States that B&K operated in conjunction with the Paramount Publix chain.[10] Cornelius W. Rapp and George L. Rapp were primary architects and the final construction cost was $4 million ($57.3 million in 2019 dollars[

Maurie and Flaurie 7191-026


He, the Tarzan-suited strongman and she, the demure lady with the bow on her head—Maurie and Flaurie. They aren’t just mascots, though—they’re representations of the real-life power couple who began the restaurant that would go on to be known nationally and even internationally as one of the best, if not the best hot dogs in Chicago, and some would say, anywhere. Maurie and Florence Berman opened Superdawg’s doors all the way back in 1948, and successfully kept them open and flourishing, including a newer location in Wheeling, for more than five decades.

Sunset and Skyline 7154-088


Chicago Skyline is an absolute architectural wonder outlined by skyscrapers of all shapes. As the birthplace of skyscrapers, Chicago has seen the birth of many architectural concepts. It all started with Goldberg’s Marina City and the One Parke Place Crain Communications Building rising as Chicago skyscrapers.

Chicago Bungalow  15-0505-003

For over 100 years, the Chicago bungalow has been an indelible piece of the city’s landscape. Circling Chicago’s center from the far north to the farthest south side neighborhoods, this building style reflects the pattern of development in the early 20th century, the spark of the American desire for homeownership and the rooting of many immigrant communities. As Chicago’s population grew and density increased, so did the desire for greater space, light and access to outdoors; all of which the bungalow provided.
