Antique postcard: Beach at Lake Bluff, IL.

Browsing through some Ebay listings the other day, I found some really great antique postcards highlighting the look of Chicago's North Shore towns back in the 1910s and 1920s.

Here's a great shot of the beach at Lake Bluff, Illinois (courtesy of Ebay seller, jialong).

I sometimes hang out at this Lake Michigan beach when the weather is warmer and the ravines and beach look pretty much the same, except there are now steel girders separating portions of the beach
and huge granite rock pilings jutting out into the water.

The granite boulders are great for climbing and hanging out on, as well as shore fishing from. Good times.
