    Early Chicago Views [1858]. Booklet with photo reproductions from the Collection of the Mark Sign Company of Chicago, ca. early 1900s. This booklet contains twelve reproduced photographs (each 7.5" x 9.25") featuring scenes of and around the four-story Chicago courthouse, which was located on the corner of Randolph and LaSalle Streets and was finished in 1853. Stiff, dark green wrappers. Very good condition.

    More Information:

    All photographs are taken from the courthouse looking toward a different direction from the courthouse: northeast, south, southwest, etc, except for one photo of the courthouse. The collection shows Chicago before the arrival of elevators, which would transform the architecture of the city. Each photograph is affixed to a slightly larger stiff backing hinged onto a leaf. Beginning with a four page introduction, each photograph is accompanied by a one typed page description.
