My wife and I had a very fun Friday night anniversary night in the city. We took a stroll along the riverwalk and had a drink at the spot between Clark and LaSalle. Next over to Untitled Supper Club for a leisurely dinner with live music. Followed by a walk over to Howl at the Moon piano bar for a nightcap and meet up with some friends celebrating a birthday.

Rare video find: Balloon tour over Chicago in 1914

A rare archival film shot over Chicago from a dirigible in 1914 is paired with current-day video looking over the same locations. (National Archives; Chris Walker and Alyssa Pointer / Chicago Tribune)

An aviation pioneer named Roy Knabenshue brought his dirigible to Chicago in 1914, offered 25-minute balloon rides and settled on a great idea:
Why not hire a cameraman to film Chicago from the air?

That brainstorm led to one of the first aerial movies of the city, a rarely seen, eight-minute film that was recently tracked down by the Chicago Tribune in the National Archives.

The film isn’t newly “discovered” — it’s been in the Archives since 1943 — but hardly anyone knew it existed, so in a sense it’s been rediscovered.
