Description

Part of series with photograph labeled "Knights of Pythias Review" on verso. This photograph is identified as a Grant Park celebration of 1917 by William Hudson Harper in Chicago: A History and Forecast: 1921, p. 166. The Chicago Tribune in 1917 indicates a "celebration" in Lincoln Park, July 28, 1917. In addition, the Knights of Pythias are among the groups on parade for Memorial Day, May 30, that first spring of World War I. The vantage point is from the top the Railway Exchange Building, the location of Bennett's office, the former Plan of Chicago office, 1906-1909.

The photograph could also document an image of a military tournament on July 4, 1910 in Grant Park.
