before october is too distant of a memory…

Frank and I went downtown and took a self-guided Devil in the White City Tour.  The statue below is 1/3 the size of the original statue that greeted guests at the 1893 World’s Fair.  Interesting facts: The Museum of Science and Industry building is an exact replica of one of the many World’s Fair buildings (if you’ve been there, you know how huge it is), and the Ferris Wheel debuted at the World’s Fair in direct competition with the Eiffel Tower which had been unveiled at a previous World’s Fair.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We drove around a little bit, too…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Frank looking for the next stop on our historic journey.  Or our journey of historic proportions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We actually drove by President Obama’s house, but this is all you can see…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What a lovely city we live in:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That is all. For now. 🙂
