Rebuilding Chicago after the Great Fire, c.1872.
The Phoenix rising from the ashes…
Can anyone help with identifying the location? Only clue might be the distinct building on the left.
Wow this picture is amazing…I think it’s the first time I’ve seen a post-Great Fire Chicago pic. I can’t imagine dirt roads on Chicago Ave…
Looking east on Chicago Ave in the days following the Great Fire, c.1871. You can see the Water Tower in the near background. It’s amazing to think how far the fire spread, considering where it started on DeKoven St. You can see the ruins of all the homes along Chicago Ave.
