Presented by the Chicago History Museum and Geoffrey Alan Rhodes.
This edition of the Chicago 00 Project brings photographs and documents from the Chicago History Museum's archive to the site of the 1929 St. Valentine’s Day Massacre at 2122 N Clark St., featuring selections from the collections of the Chicago History Museum, Chicago Tribune Archive Photo/TNS, the John Binder Collection, and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office. The photos collected here, some well-known, some rare, tell this familiar Chicago story in a new and compelling way.
The Chicago 00 Project is a partnership between the Chicago History Museum and filmmaker Geoffrey Alan Rhodes to produce and publish a series of site-specific, multimedia experiences that showcase the Museum's film, photo, and sound archive. The first installment of the project offered an augmented reality tour along the Chicago Riverwalk where the SS Eastland capsized in 1915. Chicago00 offers an innovative opportunity to make history as accessible as the public places in which the experience is based.
