This is a scarce item printed by the Indiana Limestone Company after the 1928 completion of the magnificent Michigan Avenue bridge in Chicago which is now known as the DuSable Bridge. The sculptures for which it is best known were commissioned by William Wrigley and there are four of them. James Earl Fraser was the sculptor for The Discovers which depicts La Salle and Marquette and also The Pioneers which show the early pioneers who settled the area that became Chicago. Henry Hering also provided two sculptures, Defense which features Captain Heald and the massacre of the Fort Dearborn garrison and Regeneration which depicts the regeneration of Chicago after the great fire of 1871. This items is designed accordion style. Closed it measures 8" x 11-1/4", but opens to 31" with printing on both sides. It's very clean and nice with just a light damp stain to bottom front edge only (does not appear at back) and a little toning to edges. Overall quite nice.
