Illinois - JoeDanielPrice

Downtown, Chicago, Illinois, America - The city grew rapidly in the mid-nineteenth century then suffered the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 which left over 100,000 people homeless. After the fire the city quickly rebooted and by 1900 became one of the largest in the world. Chicago constructed the world's first skyscraper (The Home Insurance Building) in 1885, using steel-skeleton construction, it was 180 feet tall after it added another two floors. Chicago's position along Lake Michigan and the construction of O'Hare International Airport made the city an international hub for finance, commerce, industry, technology, telecommunications, and transportation. The large skyscraper slightly right of centre is the Trump International Hotel and Tower (aka Trump Tower Chicago) a 98-story structure, at a height of 1,388 feet.
