Greetings From Humboldt Park

As a reaction to the Industrial Revoultion in the 19th century many big cities built parks as green getaways from the noise and pollution.  Chicago's great parks were mostly conceived and contructed between the end of the Civil War and the early 20th century.  Humboldt Park, on the West Side, is one.    

Here are seven postcards dating from around 1906 to 1930.


  1. Humboldt Park looks beautiful. If it wasn't so close to my bedtime... I'd actually try and see how much things have changed over the past 100 years.

  2. I think most of the park is intact. At least a couple of the buildings are landmarks. I've never been there.

  3. I never knew what the inspiration was for some of our more well known parks, but it certainly makes sense now that I do. Thanks for the info!

  5. I want to say thanks to Ancient Dr Zuma Spell Temple for everything so far. To everyone who doesn’t believe in spell, I was one of those ones at first. I wasn’t quite sure if I wanted to do this since I’ve tried others so-called spells casters and they did not work and was a waste of my time and money. However, when I read through the testimonials of other people about his good work i decided to contacted him and after I talked Dr Zuma who answered all my questions and was very nice about everything, I decided to give it a try. I figured it would be my last try to get my guy back. So my story is that I was at my office when the guy I am in love with told me that he wasn’t in love with me and never will be and that he didn’t want to speak or see me again, especially since he was talking to this other girl. When I talked to Dr Zuma, he let me know which spells would be most appropriate for me and I chose the ones that was to get him back to me and stay with me and want to marry me. As soon as he started on the spells, my guy came back into my life! It was a miracle to me and I’m so thankful for that. Things have been going well, and pretty much according to what Dr Zuma said would happen. He’s always there when you need him and that’s also after the spell is done. I’m still waiting for the spells to completely manifest, but with all that has happened so far I’m very happy because i was already given up on myself before contacting Dr Zuma, if you asked me or my friends if I would have anticipated how things were right now…no one would believe it!

  6. I'm as fascinated by those old stamps as I am with the postcards.
