Chicago and the Sloop Circa 1948

A great YouTube video from 1948: "James A. Fitzpatrick's Traveltalks: Chicago the Beautiful".

Maybe you will recognize:
The Stevens Hotel (now the Hilton), the largest in the world, containing three thousand hotel rooms
Or maybe:
Among the other architectural masterpieces of the city are the Shedd Aquarium, the Chicago Museum of Natural History, formerly known as the Field Museum, and Soldier Field stadium built in the classic tradition of ancient Greek and Roman architecture.

My how the things have changed...
