Where in Chicago?

Somewhere in Chicago's downtown, 1947. (Photographer unknown/author's collection)

Could you find your way around the Chicago of the past?

The picture above was taken somewhere in the general vicinity of downtown. If you want to take a guess at the location, send it in via the "Comments" section of this post. I'll run a contemporary photo of the same spot tomorrow, so you can compare what has changed, and what remains the same.

No prizes. Just for fun!
