Great Collection of old Chicago Photos and More


Found this site at the blog of Lee Bey, the Urban Observer.

The site is from the Charles W. Cushman photographic collection at Indiana University.

Cushman did mucho traveling from the late 1930's to the 1960's and 1263 of his photos involve Sweet Home Chicago. The man was taking color pics in the 1930's. You likely ain't seen much like this. Click the link and have at it.

Most of his Chicago pics are of the larger Hyde Park area with some downtown. No Uptown pics. Some great pics of circuses and the zoos and people too.
