      The O’Leary property, or a similar homestead, c. 1870. At the time, farm animals were commonly kept within city limits to provide their owners with fresh milk, butter, eggs, and other products to eat or sell. ICHi-33547 #greatchicagofire #chicago #history #chicagohistory

    The wreckage revealed by the fire’s end was dramatic, as in this photograph of the corner of State and Madison. The image also shows, however, that some roads were already clear, and horse-drawn trolleys were operating. ICHi-02811 #greatchicagofire #chicago #history #chicagohistory
