Chicago 1940s Footage


Chicago 1940sTravel back in time through footage of 1940s Chicago produced by the Chicago Board of Education as a way to introduce students across the U.S. to Chicago. This is a movie that captures everyday life in the 1940s and one that will truly transport you to another time.

While 30 minutes long, it is well worth watching as it covers nearly every aspect of Chicago from Wrigley field to the steel mills, from the famous Union Stockyards to the beaches along the lakefront.
