Every Friday I’ll be sharing a photo from someplace in my travels.
This week’s photo is from the Old Water Tower and John Hancock Building in Chicago.
Famous worldwide, the architecture in Chicago has influenced the architecture across the US. Although most of the buildings were unfortunately destroyed in the late 1800s during the “Great Chicago Fire”, one the of buildings that survived was the beautiful, antique-looking Water Tower.
Throughout the years following the fire, plenty of new, modern buildings were erected around the tower. One of the most notable is the John Hancock Center, a 100-story skyscraper that is one of the tallest in Chicago. Together, this blend of new and old helps to remind me just why I love Chicago so much.
