Today’s featured photo of the day! The feature is: Architecture – The Skies of Chicago, Illinois – An  Aerial View

Here is today’s featured photo presentation of yet another presentation of the bird’s eye view from John Hancock Observatory an hour and a half before sunset in a view of the area south to southeast from the building, prominently into the area direct center to the shores of Lake Michigan on the South Shore, including the Chicago River and Aon Center. You can see that this vintage photo is dated, as if you were to visit the 875 N. Michigan Avenue Observatory today, you would view almost twice as many buildings as you are able to view. What a view this was! I like more buildings, but it sure looks vintage. With a view like this, it makes the City of Chicago an excellent place to arrange a photo shoot–and among the best staples that have made the City of Chicago it’s very own over the various years. Days like this make for a great summer afternoon that is so relaxing, and a great place to take a vacation in! Date – July 1981.

Another fine aerial view photograph to follow very soon in the feature of Part 4 – The Skies of Chicago, Illinois. It is going to be quite a month, so join me ALL November and extended to all of December to bring back to the nice spirit of summertime!
