Dad sent an WBEZ article about the Chicago Municipal Device that was interesting (though probably not as much as their article about the immense popularity of the Chicago flag). Been looking up more about it and stumbled upon some fantastic sites with Chicago pictures. Calument412.com, whose name comes from the phone number of a famous Chicago brothel, has about 4,000 pictures/posts, so be careful how long you are on it. Which lead to another site of pictures, theManOnFive.com, whose name refers to a nickname for the mayor (the office is on the fifth floor). This is where I found the above picture (the original at least) of Johnny Weissmuller. Did you know that Johnny faked his citizenship to be in the Olympics?
