Chicago on film

Here's a link to Lee Bay's WBEZ website which features two amazing films of Chicago of the past. The first is a newsreel of the city from the mid-thirties, during or just after the Century of Progress Exhibition. It's amazing how recognizable the city is after 75 years.

The second is from a home movie shot in 1955, with folks showing off some serious wheels and duds.

Check it out.
