A recently acquired image of a crowded city scene is “Downtown Chicago“; c.1924. An amateur photo of exceptional quality developed in a home darkroom. DPI has a number of images taken in Chicago, but this one is special. The Fair Store is visible on the right as well as the 20th Century Cafe at the left. The hustle and bustle of the Roaring 20s in the Windy City.
