Chicago the Beautiful, 1948 Traveltalks.

Here's a fun look at Chicago in 1948 through the lens of an MGM travelogue. Ah, look at all those streetcars! I wish we could bring 'em back.

"What is the chief characteristic of the tall office building? ... it is lofty. ... It must be tall, every inch of it tall. ... It must be every inch a proud and soaring thing, rising in sheer exultation that from bottom to top it is a unit without a single dissenting line." — Louis H. Sullivan. From "The tall office building artistically considered," Lippincott's Magazine, March 1896.
