Greetings from Chicago

There are a variety of “Greetings from Chicago” postcards. Large letter, multi-views, leather, pennants, and the list goes on. They are fun to collect because you never know what you might find on them.

    Is that last card from before the north tower of the Wrigley Building was constructed,or is it just obstructed from view somehow? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a picture of just the south tower before!

    these are fun to view! Keep up the great work! I spent a lot of time in Chicago, growing up – had a job in Highland Park circa 1964 so went in to Chicago on my day off. Marshall Field was the first department store when I rode an escalator (in the 1950s). And those pneumatic tubes! Have lots of fun memories of the place, including the miniature rooms at the museum. My daughter just went to Chicago for a concert. She enjoyed her weekend there.
