We came across this Tumblr via it’s sister site New York Past after we had scrolled happily, drooling, through its reams of pages of old, enormous photographs of the Big Apple. The thing is, you see, that photos of old Manhattan on the internet all the time, which is why we were overjoyed to find Chicago Past: an enormous treasure trove of old images of the underdog city of Chicago from the days of yore. I don’t know about you, but I’m big into yore. Like old photos of people who are dead now mixed with architectural gems that aren’t there any more? This Tumblr is for you also. Enjoy!
