The Louis Sullivan-designed Chicago Auditorium officially opened 125 years ago today on December 9, 1889. In honor of Chicago's oldest theater and what was billed as "the eighth wonder of the world" when it opened, I dug up and scanned a period hand colored Magic Lantern glass slide of the Auditorium Building from my archival materials. Read about the celebratory events planned for the anniversary here. Image copyright PrairieMod
