Old Chicago: History and Architecture in Vintage Postcards takes you on a virtual tour of the city through postcards from the late 19th and early 20th century. Browse dozens of vintage postcards by street, category, or architect. The site was created by Pat Sabin who lives in Atlanta, Georgia and, ironically, says she has never actually been to Chicago.
