Retro Travel Poster - CHICAGO - USA
The Anderson Design Group, Inc. is an award-winning graphic design firm based in Nashville, famous for the posters, magazine and book covers with a retro look. I told you already that I'm a bit old-fashioned and this kind of design really attracts me. I've browsed the online catalog of this design firm and I would love to get more postcards with their posters, they're awesome. Thank you very much Robin for the amazing card and your description of the first time you visited this fountain (one of the highest water jet in the world and the eastern terminus of U.S. Historic Route 66.). This postcard took 15 days to arrive!
Buckingham Fountain is a Chicago landmark in the center of Grant Park. Dedicated in 1927, it is one of the largest fountains in the world. Built in a rococo wedding cake style and inspired by the Latona Fountain at the Palace of Versailles, it is meant to allegorically represent Lake Michigan. It operates from April to October, with regular water shows and evening color-light shows. During the winter, the fountain is decorated with festival lights.
