Today's Wayback Machine: Photos of Old Chicago

By Chuck Sudo in Arts & Entertainment on Jul 27, 2011 3:25PM

You know we love searching for photos of old Chicago on Flickr and elsewhere. Yesterday Kevin shared this gallery of downtown shots from 1960-65 with us from Joe and Jeanette Archie.

Turns out that was just the tip of the iceberg. The Archies have a seemingly bottomless well of wonderful shots of Chicago's yesteryear, helpfully divided into sets for easy indexing. There's this set of old stores. Shots from the "L." Stock car racing at Soldier Field. We agree with Chicago Mag's Whet Moser's assessment of the Lawndale gallery.

This is your workday time killer.
