Vintage Snapshots: Chicago In The Mid 70s

I recently came across these images from the UIC (University of Illinois) online collection, and they provide a good opportunity to pay a virtual visit to the Chicago of the past. As expected, the images show a good deal of Detroit iron from the period, with a few imports making their appearance. And well, the spirit of the times can be clearly felt through the pictures.

All images date from 1975 and were taken by C. William Brubaker. The lead picture is at Wilson Ave., near the Wilson CTA station.
