When the Chicago Daily News closed its doors in 1978 after over a century of publications, the city mourned the loss of an American original. The Daily News boasted the inventive, aggressive writing of such luminaries as Carl Sandburg and Ben Hecht, and was also one of the first newspapers in the country to feature black-and-white photography.

Mark Jacob and Richard Cahan, within Chicago Under Glass, reveal 250 never-before-published images from staffers of the art department during the early years, 1901-1930. These fragile glass records reveal not only a simple story of Chicago, but the history of the modern American city.
