Today would have been #ellafitzgerald's 100th birthday! Even after all these years her music still speaks to our soul.  We are listening to her album "Ella Fitzgerald live at Mister Kellys" today in her honor. . . . #misterkellys #happymediumadventures #londonhouse #londonhousechicago #rushstreet #rushstreetchicago #localhistory #history #chicagohistory

Bertrand Goldberg amazed the world when he completed the "Corn Cobs" in  1964. I wonder if he imagined so much dirty green Astro Turf on the balconies? Viewed from the AMA building.

With over 35,000 negatives in more than 70 individual collections, CHM’s cellulose nitrate negatives are vital to documenting #chicagohistory from the 1890s through the 1950s. Thanks to funding from the @us_imls, we are digitizing and upgrading the storage for these materials, the vast majority of which do not exist in any other format.

Spotlight on: the West Loop! Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood has undergone many changes throughout the city’s history. What began as a manufacturing and warehouse district in the 1800s has grown to one of the trendiest areas in Chicago. . The West Loop was home to Harpo Studios from 1988 to 2015. However, the building has been around much longer, since 1915! Originally used as a cold storage warehouse the property was converted into a roller skating rink in the 1940s. In 1984, the building briefly was known as the Fred Niles Studios. Oprah made it her Midwest empire in the late 1980s. The studio's presence help revitalize the area and bring about the highly-rated restaurants, prestigious art galleries and industrious businesses that thrive there today. Want to live in the epicenter of this hip and vibrant city neighborhood? So did Oprah! How cool is that? #ourownchi
