Chicago Loop 1930s. All of these shots seem to be taken from the top of a very tall building. They are a little shaky and dirty but otherwise a great record of the Chicago skyline ca. 1930s. High angle shots of merchandise mart, tilt down to Chicago river and bridge being raised. Barge passes under it. A series of pans across the skyline. Some shots looking down on the streets, rail tracks, and rooves of buildings. One shot of a train passing below (two cars). More skyline pans at 03:04, the Hotel Sherman, more tall buildings
