Just before the World's Fair of 1933-34
Found excellent pics of Chicago (and other parts of Illinois) in a 1931 National Geographic I picked up for a dime at a library booksale. Right now, I have to switch to Mac "classic" OS 9 to use my scanner, and I don't really feel like all that effort, so you'll have to make do with my digital photos, rather than scans. Still, these are quite cool. Click on the pic to get a larger version.
First in the series: University of Chicago/Hyde Park
