Engraving of Prince Albert, son of Queen Victoria, on his visit to Chicago in 1860. He was the first royal to visit the city.
The image depicts his procession along Michigan Ave, near Randolph. I expect the large building is the International Exhibition Pavillion that stood where the Art Institute now stands.
