Chicago River Bridge

The Crossing

A Chicago skyline from the Chicago River Bridge at Franklin Street

Plate No. 155   An etching aquatint on grey paper  size 12" x 11"

Edgar Lee Masters writes about Chicago.....

Skyscrapers, helmeted, stand sentinel 
Amid the obscuring fumes of coal and coke.

Raised by enchantment out of the sand and bog.

This sky-line, the Sierras of the lake.
