Like the other Currier and Ives facsimiles offered 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 is the central business district, with the rest of the metropolis extending on the horizon.
The large edition of this view highlights the quality of the coloring of this fine lithograph.
