Chicago has always been one of the greatest american cities we have ever had. Although there was a time during prohibition that Chicago was known for there gangsters and crime. This city is a beautiful place and I recommend visiting any chance you get. We have put together some amazing old photos that show a different side of Chicago you might not know anything about.
It is crazy to think that one day way back when this was the skyline in downtown Chicago. Here is a great view taken in the early 1900's of what the downtown looked like. It was not until the age of prohibition that the real money started to flow into this city and sky scrapers started popping up like crazy.
