It's easy to tell that Chicago has been an important city for a long time from the sheer amount of nineteenth-century buildings that still stand there. The Loop is full of structures that were already well-used by 1900, and while some newer buildings blend into that there are outliers; outliers like the Trump Tower, that shining silver structure up ahead, originally planned to be the tallest building in the world but eventually its builders settled on it being the second-tallest building in Chicago. This photo was taken at some point along N Wabash Avenue looking north in the autumn of 2009.
