"A New Conscience and an Ancient Evil" was published in 1912 by Jane Addams.  A New Conscience and an Ancient Evil assesses the vulnerability of the rural and immigrant working-class girls who moved to Chicago and fell prey to the sexual bartering of what was known as the white slave trade .Because they lacked funds for proper recreation, Addams argues, poor and socially marginalized women were susceptible to sexual slavery, and without radical social change they would perhaps be "almost as free" as young men. In addition to promoting higher wages and better living conditions, Addams suggests that a longer period of public education for young women would deter them from the dangers of city life.

Even though I’m sad to see this guy go after 17 years in the Field Museum’s lobby, I’m super excited and curious to see the new Titanosaur, Maximo, being installed today. His head will creep into the second floor balcony!

The last time we performed “The Bells”, the composer himself - Sergei Rachmanioff - was conducting! (I wasn’t there 🤣😂😆) Twilight of an Empire "This program features two distinctly different Russian composers whose music exemplified the end of the romantic era and the dawn of the next. Rachmaninoff’s The Bells was inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s poem of the same name. Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 2 in D Minor was described by its composer as a work of 'iron and steel.'” The Bells will be performed in English.

Judge Julian Hoffman looks on disapprovingly as Abbie Hoffman (no relation) reads a book during the Chicago Seven trial in 1969. Sketch by Franklin McMahon, from the Chicago History Museum collection.

Just arrived: The Chicagoan - A Lost Magazine of the Jazz Age by Neil Harris. I adore this book 📖. (Mine was lost when I moved last September.) I’m fortunate to have a few original copies of the magazine, which was Chicago’s version of the New Yorker in the 1920s & 30s. #chicagohistory

An audio treasure of Chicago history is now available to the public. I talked to some of the people (WFMT's Tony Macaluso & Allison Schein Holmes) who worked on the new Studs Terkel Radio Archive. Listen to the feature by clicking on the link in my profile.

Lake Meadows. These apartments run along King Drive from 26th street to 36th. It used to have a Black population mainly. But now it has been under gentrification by Asians and Indians. Even the Presidential Towers in the west loop has been over ran by the same group.

This picture pretty much sums up my Chicago Trip so far. The fog and rain haven’t stopped me yet though.
Today, while walking the streets and looking up at all the buildings, an older gentleman stopped to tell me about this building. Built as The Standard Oil Building, or Big Stan, it was the fourth tallest building in the world in 1974. It was originally clad in Italian Carrara marble, until...a 350 pound slab came crashing down onto the streets below. It turns out the marble wasn’t suitable for the changing temperatures and moisture of Chicago. All the marble had to be removed and the building reclad in granite, for a price tag nearly as much as the building itself. Turns out the gentleman I was talking to was an engineer working on the building back in the day.

Regrann from @chicago_history -  View of some of the former mansions that once lined North Lake Shore Drive, circa 1936. View is looking north on Lake Shore Drive with East Bellevue Place as the cross street, visible in photo at bottom. The large stone block mansion standing on the southwest corner was the residence of Mrs Edith Rockefeller McCormick. Across the street, stood the William Borden house at 1020 North Lake Shore Drive, Richard Morris Hunt, architect. Demolished, early 1960s. Hard to determine the remaining residences and who lived there without accurate addresses. According to the 1929 Polk Directory, they list this info: 1040 N. Lake Shore Dr. - Phi Chi Medical Fraternity; 1042 N. Lake Shore Dr. - Mr. A. H. and Mary Mulliken; 1046 N. Lake Shore Dr. - Frost Ora Lightner girls club; and 1050 N. Lake Shore Dr. - Dr Charles H and Hazel Bramwell, a rich dentist who made the society pages of the Chicago Tribune with his divorce from his wife in 1938. Newspaper published this headline: Wife charges rich dentist has turned playboy. Photograph was taken on October 1, 1936. Image is from the series of photographs available online at the Illinois Department of Transportation Chicago Traffic photographs, University of Illinois at Chicago Library.

Something a little different for #SUNDAYSILVER today!  We just attended a wonderful presentation at the Museum of Science & Industry @msichicago about The Chicago’s World’s Fair of 1893, also known as the World’s Columbian Exposition at Chicago, 1893.  I’m a bit of a fan of the Chicago world fairs and my husband gifted me this coin silver Columbian 50-cent piece that was coined by the U.S. Treasury to help fund the fair. $2.5 million worth of the coins were issued to the Exposition corporation who then sold them as fair souvenirs for about twice their face value.  Since this fair was held in honor of the 400th anniversary of Columbus’s discovery of the New World, the coin depicts his image on one side and his largest ship, the Santa Maria, on the other.

And yes, I also watched the DVD again this morning.  And flipped through the book. Again.

If you are familiar with the book, The Devil in the White City by Erik Larsen, this is the same World’s Fair that he writes about along with  the story of the serial killer that preyed on Chicagoans around the same time. 
Coin silver is about 90% silver and 10% copper.

Artistic Architect: “Mr. Benjamin Marshall is the only man since Disraeli to wear ruffles on the bosoms of his dress-shirts. Moreover, if he took a fancy to wearing green silk hats or red velvet breeches, he would wear them. Quite casually. He is nothing if not an individualist. 
Like the Chevalier Belasco, his attire is always picturesque. Undoubtedly both of them realize that a make-up has all the value of a trade-mark. Ben Marshall never appears without a flowing Windsor tie. Sometimes it is of chaste black silk; sometimes jade green or magenta. His hat is always a soft one, with the rim turned down all around. He wore his hats this way for years before collegians and other snappy dressers adopted the mode. 
Though one of the most commercially successful of America’s architects, he prefers to think of himself as an artist rather than as a builder. In conversation he frequently uses the word, ‘artistic.’ Ben Marshall works hard. Even when he is playing, he is working. Just now he is roaming about the Orient, picking up objects d’art and ideas. This jaunt might be considered a vacation. But it will doubtless prove a profitable one. He is no idler, this Chicago architect. 
A blythe spirit out of the Eighteenth century - driving a yellow Packard.” (Excerpt from The Chicagoan, April 21, 1928) #chicagoarchitects #chicagohistory
