About the Chicago 00 project

Chicago00 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.

This episode brings photographs and documents from the archive to the site of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, 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.
