An article from Jet Magazine, 1970, Chicago.
Happy and proud to now be from a state where the word ‘married’ won’t be in quotes.
Congratulations on passing marriage equality, Illinois!

Thanks to pdcusbfan for submitting this great footage of 1936 Chicago. It’s worth watching the entire 13 minutes!
Update: It seems that most of the footage from this short comes from a 1933 reel, with sound. Watch it here: http://youtu.be/avnr6Y4qibk
On the grounds at Pullman, 1884, Chicago
Be sure to include historic Pullman in your Open House Chicago schedule this weekend, Oct 19-20.
Interior of the Pullman Arcade, a sort of ”company store” for the employees of Pullman and the residents of Pullman, Roseland and Kensington.
Shoppers could buy things at the “lowest Chicago prices.”
I’m sure no strings were attached…
