Michigan Avenue in 1959

Chicago's Michigan Avenue in 1959

A beautiful shot of Michigan Avenue in 1959, looking north from just south of the intersection of Randolph and Michigan. The Wrigley Building is the near the center of the photo and you can see the Chicago Public Library (now the Cultural Center) on the left. Posted on Flickr as part of the wonderful Nick DeWolf photo archive.
