Over the course of the pandemic I have gone through images I took on black and white film many years ago. I had a subset of these images scanned and from there I did minor edits and fixing of scratches on the film.
This image was taken during the winter of 1990 from the Michigan Avenue looking east down the Chicago River. The cranes which you are seeing on the left bank just past Columbus Drive is the starting of the Sheraton Grand Chicago which opened in 1992. Under construction in front of Lake Point Tower is 474 Lake Shore Drive which was completed in 1991.
Thirty years later this is a different scene with the growth on both sides of the river out to Lake Shore Drive.
