1982 >> 2010

28 years later.

Chicagoan John Belushi stands at the northeast corner of Michigan Avenue and Pearson Street in 1982 in a Chicago Tribune archival photograph. Colby's (furniture?) store, and a Crate and Barrel are behind him, on the southwest corner. Today, “Plaza Escada” with its very corny clock tower, occupies that spot. To the south, the I. Magnin's department store building now houses Border's Books and Filene's Basement.

Firmly standing its ground tho, as always, is Chicago's Water Tower. It has seen it all.
