Windy City Ribfest, Uptown Chicago, and a Historic View of Uptown Square
Uptown Square used to be a frequent gathering place for the neighborhood's residents. The vintage photo below, from the Chicago Daily News negatives collection, shows a similar scene in Uptown Square as residents await the election results in 1920.
Here's the original caption:
