Geographic Region: USA-ILLINOIS

NM21-765-043 Lake Michigan and South Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A. Winter 1995-1996
Featured in this northeast-looking, low-oblique photograph are the southern end of Lake Michigan and a small portion of central Chicago from near downtown (the loop) through southern Chicago to the northwestern Indiana cities of Hammond, East Chicago, and Gary (near right center). Most of Chicago's heavy industry--steel fabrication plants, iron and steel mills, and chemical plants--are located in this area. Just south of Interstate Highway 55 is Chicago Midway Airport (barely discernible near left center). Visible is Chicago Merrill C. Meigs Field, a small airport protruding into Lake Michigan and paralleling the shoreline. (Refer to NM21-765-044 for a photograph of central and north Chicago.)
