Ran into a couple of interesting photographs depicting buildings damaged by the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. That is per the PTB, of course.
  • The Great Chicago Fire was a conflagration that burned in the American city of Chicago during October 8–10, 1871.
  • The fire killed approximately 300 people, destroyed roughly 3.3 square miles of the city, and left more than 100,000 residents homeless.
  • The fire began in a neighborhood southwest of the city center. A long period of hot, dry, windy conditions, and the wooden construction prevalent in the city led to the conflagration.
