1906 UDB Glitter Postcard CHICAGO, IL GRAND BLVD MLK
One of 2 cards from the same era and same style featuring beautiful early Chicago, Illinois.
Decorated in glitter, not very visible in the scan.
This beautiful old card was made in Germany for the P. Schmidt Publ. - Chicago. UNDIVIDED BACK and cancelled in 1906. A great piece of Chicago History by a fine maker!
Here we see a train of horse and wagons approaching down the boulevard and getting a drink where the people are gathering. A boy on a bike. pretty period clothing. A woman pushes a carriage on the far right.
From Wikipedia:Grand Boulevard, located on the South Side of Chicago, Illinois, is one of the well-defined Chicago Community Areas. The boulevard from which the community area takes its name now bears the name of Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive.The area is bounded by 39th to the north, 51st Street to the south, Cottage Grove Avenue to the east, and the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad tracks to the west. The Robert Taylor Homes were located mostly in Grand Boulevard. This is one of the two community areas that are part of the area known as Bronzeville, with the other being Douglas.
