A tinted slide from the very first film production of The Wizard of Oz, c.1908, Selig Studios (Irving Park and Western), Chicago.
And of course, Frank L. Baum wrote the Oz series of books while living in Chicago. Rumor has it that his offices were located directly across the street from the Art Institute and the lions at the entrance were his inspiration for the Cowardly Lion…
I haven’t read the books, but is that a badger??
