Photo Theme. Visit participants.
This weeks theme is Metal
In August of 2007 my husband and I drove to Chicago for a weekend visit with my brother-in-law. Given how long it takes to get to Chicago from Toronto we really only had one full day to see some of the great Chicago sites. I’d never been there before and I wanted to see as much as I could.
As we strolled downtown I noticed the Carson Pirie Scott department store.
The store had the most beautiful ornate metal filigree that I think I’ve ever seen on a building. It was just a gorgeous site to see.
Unfortunately the store was slated to close. I do hope that the city of Chicago managed to preserve this beautiful building.
I really enjoyed my visit to Chicago. I found that it’s quite a lot like Toronto and I hope to visit the great city again sometime soon, perhaps this summer. Of course if we drive that distance back and forth again I think we’ll either have to rent a vehicle or get a new car. I’m not sure ours will make that trip one more time! Oh that reminds me … I’ve to look up some rates for auto insurance online as I think it’s time to find better rates.
