Nice unintentional tilt-shift effect on a photo of the Lake Shore Drive Bridge, 1950, Chicago.
Note: This photo is “reversed”, meaning what looks like should be the the north side of the bridge is actually the south side. The Sante Fe sign would have appeared backward to someone standing in the same spot. Thanks to Peter Amling for pointing this out!
