Like the other Currier and Ives facsimiles illustrated in this catalog, this appealing view of Chicago duplicates the typical bold colors of the original lithograph. It looks down on the city from a point high above Lake Michigan and shows the harbor crowded with boats. Beyond along the lake shore and the banks of the Chicago River, the central business district, with the rest of the metropolis extending on the horizon. Reduced in size from the original.
