Chicago's State Street in 1963

1963 photo of 126-146 North State Street, Chicago

An August 1963 photo of 126-146 North State Street in Chicago. These buildings were part of the old Block 37 that was demolished in 1989. The block sat vacant for nearly 20 years and is now home to an office tower (housing CBS and Morningstar, Inc.) and a shopping mall. You can download a free high-resolution version of this photograph from the Library of Congress.
