Michigan Avenue parade, north of Jackson Street and the Art Institute of Chicago (partial double exposure)

Title

Michigan Avenue parade, north of Jackson Street and the Art Institute of Chicago (partial double exposure)

Subject

Michigan Avenue (Chicago, Ill.)

Description

This partially-double-exposed photo by Edward Bennett from the roof of the Railway Exchange Building shows the Pullman Building (two doors north), the Peoples Gas Company Building (across Adams Street north), and the Art Institute of Chicago (across Michigan Avenue facing west along Adams).

The occasion is a military parade with flags on the Art Institute of Chicago. Also seen is the crowd along the two sides of Michigan Avenue.

The Pullman Building's roof provides an interesting perspective on this now-demolished structure by architect Solon S. Beman. Beman was George Pullman's architect in the 1880s for his planned town of Pullman, on the lakefront south of Chicago at the time, and the setting for his Pullman Palace Car works.

The Peoples Gas Building was designed by the Burnham firm and the Art Institute of Chicago by Shepley Rutan & Coolidge (Boston), with Coolidge the local partner.
