Documenting the architecture, streets, and people of Chicago
These two photos taken together are terrific. The people crossing the street on Chicago Ave are local residents, mostly young, trendy, and reasonable well educated showing some disposable income. The two suit wearing, blue shirt, corporate management types on Michigan Ave are probably conventioneers from out of town staying at a hotel and on expense account. Good sociological eye in these pictures.
I like your perspective, that's a great description of the locals. I agree on the blue shirts, definitely businessmen on their way to conduct business.
