19th Century Rotunda: Lobby
WOW... What a great period in Chicago history; the tail end of the 19th century as shown in Private Mailing Cards with pictures. Chicago officially adopted the "I WILL" motto, with it meaning the rebuilding of the City of Chicago after the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. The first commercial postal cards produced in the U.S. were sold at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago.
