Great Divide  A bridge between the neighborhoods of Bronzeville and Bridgeport, seen from within the vacant Main Building of the Armour Institute. This boundary has been home to some of Chicago's most extreme racial tensions, including the unprovoked beating of a black teenager named Lenard Clark twenty years ago. The Armour Institute was established as a place to bring people from all walks of life into learning, but at the border of these two very different neighborhoods, it has failed to facilitate the equity sought by its founders.  #35mm #analogphotography #filmphotography #filmisnotdead #staybrokeshootfilm #filmcommunity #filmstagraeme #photofilmy #pentaxk1000 #cityphotography #urbanlandscape #chicago #insta_chicago #chicagohistory #chiarchitecture #bronzeville #bridgeportchicago #window #windowview #shadows #bridge #abandoned #abandonedbuilding #racism #historicalplace #archi_ologie #deserve2preserve

We’re thinking of this special lady today. She absolutely loved dogs, and she is pictured here with her beloved Albert in 1946. Have a great weekend! #dogsofinstagram #dogs #colliesofinstagram #chicago #chicagohistory
From our historical archives: Heading east on 120th from Morgan in 1955, a Green Hornet on the #36 Broadway (what was then the longest streetcar line in the city) begins a 24-mile trip to Devon/Clark. By the end of the year, the route had been divided in two, and streetcars were replaced on the southern portion with buses, which looped downtown via Wacker, Wabash, and Grand back to State.  Until buses took over the northern portion of the route 14 months later, #36 streetcars operated south on State to Polk, looping via Dearborn and Kinzie back to State. Built by the St. Louis Car Company, #4396 was one of the last PCC cars delivered to CTA in 1948. Parts from 570 of the cars were later used by the St. Louis Company to build CTA’s 6000-series rapid transit cars.  #cta70 #cta #ctahistory #chicagohistory #streetcars #westpullman #pccs #publictransit #transit #publictransport #publictransportation #railways #streetrailways #trolleys #rogerspark #edgewater #andersonville #lincolnpark #lakeview #roseland #chatham #washingtonpark #parkmanor #brozneville #douglas
