Downtown Skyline from Wrigley, 1975

I took this shot of Chicago’s downtown skyline from the upper deck of Wrigley Field in 1975 as the Cubs were playing the Astros. This angle caught everything from the partially completeted Sears Tower up to the near North.  The John Hancock Center, which was completed in 1968, can also be seen. For a period of time, the Hancock Center was the tallest building in the world outside of New York City. In 1975, it would be eclipsed the the Sears Tower.
