Today’s featured photo of the day! The feature is: Architecture – The Buildings of Chicago, Illinois

Here is today’s featured photo presentation of the eastern view of the intersection of Michigan Avenue & Wacker Drive. To let the summer months REALLY shine, I am featuring fine photos of great architecture, so we can continue to honor the brighter side of life this year. Part 3 features the beauty of The Buildings of Chicago, Illinois, so this intersection is located in the prime real estate area of the mouth into The Magnificent Mile from Downtown Chicago over the DuSable Bridge that has honored of Jean Baptiste Point du Sable, because of the fact that she was a fur merchant in the 18th century near the Chicago River. Uniquely enough, Lake Shore Drive was renamed after the same person, and it is not that close or near this bridge. This will definitely cause confusion henceforward to not only map apps, but tourists and a lot of other persons who are not familiar with the City of Chicago. This photo is unique in that it looks as though when I took the photo, it was very close to the proximity of where the Trump Towers in Chicago stands., but way before that was even planned to be built. An excellent set of buildings shown here, and a great black and white photo. It is sections of the City of Chicago that are very exquisite, and yet even another example of the great staple in Chicago, making the great city it’s very own, and a great place to vacation because of its darling beauty! Date – July 1981.
