Picture Folder of Greater Chicago and Landmarks
for item Misc307
This is a very nice vintage, foldout picture folder of the city of Chicago, its landmarks and buildings. The copyright is 1937.
The folder is card stock and fan-folded inside is a strip of pictures printed on both sides. The pictures are on a paper stock – not card stock as some I have seen. The inside of the folder gives some facts and figures about Chicago and its businesses.
Some of the pictures include Buckingham Fountain in Grant Park, Union Station, Palmolive Building, Wrigley Building, Chicago Stadium, Outer Drive Link Bridge & Skyline, Union Stock Yards, and more.
The card is divided with the phrase, "Wold’s Most Experienced Airline." There are no dates on the card to verify age.
The folder is in good condition with some wear to the edges and corners. The back side has been fractured across the area that is slotted to close the folder. The inside pictures are in amazing condition. They are still bright and colorful – no tears or bends.
This is a very nice piece of memorabilia for a Chicago collector!
