Wonderful Snapshot of Chicago Fifty Years Ago

I was hipped to this by the wonderful Samarov tumblr. Wonderful 12 minute color film of Chicago in 1962 with narration by someone trying his best to be Nelson Algren. The el DOES make endless circles around my heart as the city sings me a lullaby of lunatics and lovers.

Interesting video. I like the tracks running by Wrigley. With the exception of Maxwell Street not much has changed.
