Drinking cups sit between the bars of the basement lockup at the Chicago Police Department's Englewood station in March 1947. A Chicago Tribune story said the John Howard Association study showed the city "consistently violates the Chicago municipal code with respect to its district jails." Of 9 stations condemned as unsanitary in 1924 by the Chicago Health Department, the Englewood, Stanton, Maxwell, Desplaines and East Chicago locations were still in use and considered filthy in 1947. #lockup #englewood #jail #cpd

Actress Carole Lombard in Chicago in 1934. The most successful actress of the 1930s, Lombard was also famous for her marriage to actor Clark Gable in 1939. Lombard died tragically in 1942 in a plane crash. She was returning home from a war bond rally in her home state of Indiana with her mother, and Gable's agent (and close friend) Otto Winkler. #carolelombard #clarkgable #planecrash #1930s

In this 1922 aerial of Chicago, the tallest building is the Wrigley. The Tribune Tower was not yet built. Rush Street had a small bridge behind the Wrigley building that spanned the Chicago River. #chicagofromtheair #1920s #wrigley #aerials

Location: 103rd St. and Roberts Rd., west of Chicago Ridge. Date: March 6, 1930. Chicago Police and deputy coroners gather around the still-running automobile of John "Dingbat" Oberta, with Oberta's body in the front seat. Earlier the same evening Oberta, a South Side gangster and politican, and his chauffeur Sam Malega, 25, were "taken for a ride" from Oberta's floral shop, 1725 W. 47th St., Chicago. Police said Oberta likely was killed in a $5,000 whiskey deal gone bad. #dangerousflorist #gangstersandgrifters #goforaride #dingbat #prohibition

Madison and May streets, Sept. 30, 1964: By this time, the Madison Street Skid Row area was vanishing, bit by bit. A shuttered strip club bar (in this view looking east) was one of many businesses folding. #skidrow #1960s #stripclub #frenchquarters #girlsonreview

Bob's Quick Lunch in 1890 in Chicago. Cheap meals were offered at 24-hour short-order houses, where entrees at places such as Bob's cost as little as 10 cents. Mmmm, liver & onions for a dime. #1890s #cheapeats #chicagorestaurants #shortordercooks
