    CHICAGO - This awesome 1940s tourism film takes you on a street tour of postwar Chicago, then the second-largest city in the nation. "Chicago, The Beautiful," a 10-minute 1948 travelogue starring narrator James A. FitzPatrick, shows off "the queen city of the Great Lakes," where "American enterprise and progressive people have combined to build in less than a century the second-largest metropolis in North America."

What Landmark Status Could Mean for Former Johnson Publishing Building

That’s the unassuming design of the former Johnson Publishing headquarters at 820 South Michigan Avenue. But there’s a lot more to this structure than meets the eye.

    Ameritalia Apparently Closes at 1303 S. Michigan
    A reader writes: It looks as though Ameritalia on Michigan, just south of 13th has closed. There was no official sign saying so, but as I walked by last night - no lights on, no signage in the windows, and upon looking inside, things were cleared out. Kinda sad but not surprising.
