CreatorChicago Aerial Survey Co.
DescriptionCaption: "Chicago from the Air, Showing Lake Michigan, Grant Park and Michigan Boulevard". From text: "Europeans have sauntered up Michigan Avenue at theatre time, when the moon was climbing out of the lake, silhouetting the classic lions of the Art Institute against a Maxfield Parrish sky, glorifying the Grecian peristyle with its silver radiance, and they have pronounced it the most colorful boulevard in the world. By day, they have called it inspiring: On one side towering skyscrapers that stretch blocks and blocks north and south; on the other, the expanse of Lake Michigan which gives the glamour and color and bigness to this enchanted highway."
