This intricately made antique wood-engraved print is a lovely panoramic view of this soon-to-be-famous city called Chicago.  The many houses, with relatively few streets, can be seen along the shore of Lake Michigan.  The lake is home to a variety of boats, lighthouses, and breakwaters. In the distance, you can see where "civilization" gives way to wilderness.  

Condition:  Good, suitable for framing.
