Twenty years ago, I was walking along this street in Chicago when I saw a television crew surrounding this very well dressed woman. She looked important, tossing her hat in the air, as if for some television commercial. I remember having to step around the pavement to get around her and the crew. I spent a few minutes watching the scene and then I took a photo because, I was a tourist and I had a camera with me. I had no idea who she was. It wasn’t until later, back in Australia, that someone looking at my photos told me that this woman was Oprah and had a somewhat popular television show. O! 🙂
I think this may have been on North Michigan Avenue, but if anyone can correct me please let me know.
In 1993 I spent a couple of weeks in “The Windy City”. I was travelling with an SLR in those days, my Konica T4 auto reflex and mostly using Kodak Gold. As I am currently digitising my negatives, if I find any nice or interesting ones I’ll pop them on my blog, although this will only be sporadically but may be of some “historical” interest.
