Belmont Harbor Press

To the Presses!
This post is related to another post called 
These following images, that were collected from Ebay,tell a story of the harbor from the perspective of the press.
photo - Ebay
This photo is housed in the Ravenswood-Lake View Community Association Collection. The ship pictured is apparently the first harbor house after the Belmont Yacht Harbor was opened to the public in 1913. This photo was donated in 1938 to the Chicago Library;acquired by the association in 1963 and then published in the Chicago Tribune in 1989.
This post tells a tale of Belmont Harbor from the photo lenses of the newspaper photographer. The source of most of these photo images is Ebay. All the images shown is the photo itself along with its accompanied text that was meant to be published in the newspaper. Most are from the Chicago Tribune and a few from the Chicago Sun-Times.
I needed enhance most of the photos, particularly the text.
The photos and text are in chronological order.
And like most of my blog … photos and information will be added when available online and/or when I have the opportunity. Enjoy!
